Over the last few years supply chain and procurement functions have been undergoing massive changes. Due diligence around the supply chain has become taken precedence over the last few years due to several reasons like increasing fuel costs, difficult demand forecasting due to erratic fluctuations across global economies, digital transformation, changing consumer behaviors etc., additionally unprecedented events like the Covid-19 has caused an added pressure on supply chains. All of this uncertainty has caused businesses to re-visit and re-vamp their supply chains over the last few years, despite constantly trying to stay on top of the rapidly shifting trends it is becoming more and more challenging for managers to keep their supply chains up to the mark to meet the needs of the markets. Businesses are now not only focused on meeting with global demands but also ensuring that this is done is the most sustainable and environmentally friendly manner while still allowing flexibility to adapt major disruptions.
Supply chain management and procurement are no longer considered secondary functions in businesses, instead they have emerged as the backbone of the business. Failing to have a strong but flexible strategy in place will definitely make it difficult for businesses to survive in the market.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Over the last few years UAE has arisen as a key player in logistics and supply chain management, globally. The government is constantly undertaking several strategies to set the UAE apart and to use its strategic location. Over the last few years as the global supply chain is undergoing transformation, UAE has been forced to implement new and unique strategies to keep up with the ever growing and ever evolving needs of the markets.
At the Supply Chain and Procurement Forum we aim at bringing together all the important parties involved in the supply chain cycle to discuss opportunities, challenges and what the future holds in store for the global supply chain.
