#Supply Chain


The digital transformation of supply chains is only accelerating. From trends like data platforms, the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, companies are applying technologies to create more efficient and cost effective supply chains with more visibility, driving down inventory and increasing speed to the customer. How can we understand and leverage these technologies to develop smarter ways to detect risk, maximize opportunities, and create more sustainable supply chains?

During this webinar, we will provide a quick whistle-stop tour through these tech trends and focus on two solutions that are already using new technology to enable companies to meet their sustainable supply chain needs. Geoff Taylor of ChainPoint will present how the company is working with GoodWeave to develop a tech platform that is helping Target identify risks of child labor in its supply chain in India, and Shehrina Kamal of DHL Resilience360 will showcase how the platform leverages machine learning to monitor supplier risks and gain further visibility in the supply chain.  

Speakers

  • Shehrina Kamal, Senior Manager, Product Management and Business Development, DHL Resilience360
  • Geoff Taylor, Chief Technology Officer, ChainPoint
  • Tara Norton, Managing Director, BSR
