The Next Focus Of Supply Chain Management


The move toward leaner and greener supply chains have companies focused on further reducing waste and lowering excess inventory and creating more eco-friendly operations. This is escalated by the number of green-conscious consumers, as recently reported by Forrester Research indicating that 12 percent of U.S. adults – nearly 25 million people – are willing to pay extra for consumer electronics that save energy or come from a company that is environmentally responsible. As companies examine ways to streamline operations, tools that can help lower excess inventory, determine the optimal “right-shoring” plan and reduce fuel and logistics costs while lowering overall carbon emissions are in high demand.
