As businesses continue to navigate economic uncertainty, shipping delays and bottlenecks, supply chain flexibility and visibility are crucial to weathering unexpected chaos.

‘Since logistics is a system of systems, when out of alignment, there are repercussions throughout the supply chain. The largest challenge in 2023 will be navigating continued global disruption while supply chains are reshaped,’ said Lisa Anderson of LMA Consulting.
