The past year has been especially turbulent for the supply chain industry as online retail exploded with 46% of consumers making an online purchase, according to the NatWest Group. The supply chains which businesses rely upon have been subject to irregularity and instability throughout the pandemic and alongside Brexit in the UK, businesses have had to rapidly adjust. After facing such gigantic challenges, 2021 is the time for supply chains to diversify, and data will be the cornerstone upon which these new channels will be developed. Smaller, more flexible networks that can respond rapidly to consumer demand can now overtake monolithic, slow-moving supply chains. The post-covid supply chains will include digital warehouses, connected factories, automated ordering, and AI-based interconnected consumer intelligence which will redefine modern-day logistics.
