Its aim is to open critical discussions with business leaders around the key digitisation changes transforming the logistics industry, inspiring innovation and greater efficiency in the process.

Rather than offering answers and action points, it engages with decision-makers by asking big questions. These focus on themes such as supply chain visibility, automation and sustainability.

With technologies including Cobots, Blockchain, 3D printing and robotic suits starting to become integral parts of supply chains, it is important that leaders understand how they can all work together alongside existing infrastructure. This new guide demonstrates the importance of this convergence and how it affects the role of people.

This is the second guide from Wincanton, following up on The Wincanton Guide to the Digitised Supply Chain; published in 2018.

This latest guide poses key questions to business leaders across four key areas, focusing on the imperatives in each and how to address the challenges they present:

Adrian Colman, CEO of Wincanton, says:

"In this guide for leaders, we explore the core digital transformation issues, offering new perspectives on the risks and benefits to business. We also share our experiences of what we are finding by implementing digital transformation in a number of parts of our own business, and areas of our customers’ businesses.

"We want to help the business leaders initiate those first vital conversations about how your supply chain can best adapt for the future. It’s a necessary but challenging process, and one which brings opportunity for those prepared to embrace it."
