About the Content

The transportation and logistics industry is dealing with an unprecedented level of disruption. The pandemic has completely changed the way consumers buy goods and services, with more sales happening online than in stores. Additionally, the Amazon model of delivery within 24-48 hours is now extending to more traditional retailers, which means that transportation and logistics companies are under more pressure than ever to deliver. As a result of these increasing expectations, business continuity and resilience are critical for transportation and logistics organizations. 

Finance and procurement leaders have an opportunity to find new ways of keeping their organization’s processes and cash flow moving with minimal disruptions. This requires complete visibility across an organization’s suppliers and spend. When you know precisely where you are spending money and with whom, you can drive efficiencies, minimize disruptions, and mitigate risk. Complete visibility across all flows of money, goods, and services is critical at this moment.

Discussion Topics

  • Why the intelligent use of data is the foundation for visibility and better decision making 
  • Using technology to better understand and proactively manage supply chain risk & environmental sustainability goals 
  • How to identify opportunities for rapid savings 
  • Understanding the opportunity to step up and lead their organization through and beyond the crisis 
  • Case studies that demonstrate how finance, procurement and supplier ecosystems are used for greater visibility 
  • How you’re managing supply chain disruptions, the move toward digitization, and the increased spotlight on finance leaders during the current global crisis
