The COVID-19 pandemic has sent a shockwave through the manufacturing industry, disrupting supply chains, delayed delivery of goods and, sometimes halting production.
In a survey conducted, 94% of the fortune 1000 companies reported seeing Coronavirus-related supply chain disruptions as early as February. Businesses are working rapidly to adapt to the new normal and overcome these challenges, but are having difficulties without the tools needed to adjust to disruptions in real-time. And now that the nation eases into a general community quarantine status, the supply chain industry is taking several steps to adapt to the “new normal.”
With the increasing demand for goods and day-to-day deliveries, it’s becoming critical for businesses to introduce automation in their supply chain processes. But the question is, how can you automate your supply chain operations to adapt to the new normal?
The Power of Supply Chain Automation
Digitized Supply Chain
Businesses that are ready to embrace automation ensures that core delivery processes like job allocation, scheduling, real-time tracking do not need any manual intervention. Automating time-consuming tasks and processes is a proven way to reduce costs, ensure the safety of employees, and deliver employee-based savings.
Automation is much more than just reducing the human workload. It’s also about making supply chain processes proactive. A supply chain solution can automatically predict delays, risks, generate accurate ETAs, and do much more by leveraging data. By making this available, organizations can streamline processes and enhance the customer experience during a difficult time.
