Challenges in the Current Market

With the proliferation of technology in our day to day life, e-commerce, mobile shopping and a new generation of customers with few brand loyalties, the boundaries on business operations are being pushed. Today’s supply chains have to perform under uncertain geo-political circumstances, erratic macro-economic cycles of growth, contraction and recovery wherein products are tailored to the customer needs, to be delivered as a perfect order with ever shortening service levels. The uncertainty has reduced the predictability of order flow resulting in multiple micro deliveries at higher costs. A flexible, responsive supply chain that optimizes demand-supply cycle has become a challenge.
