Reimagining the Digital Control Tower: Modern, Resilient, Intuitive

It has been two decades since the logistics industry created the control tower, addressing the challenge of accounting for inventory in motion / at rest and providing greater visibility for 3PLs, distributors, retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers.

Today, digital control towers (DCTs) have benefitted from two decades of supply chain innovation. However, when it comes to better enabling companies to predict demand with greater accuracy, progress has been slow. Many companies still resort to buffering demand uncertainty with inventory.

RESEARCH: Global Trade Management Agenda 2015
 

This year's 'Global Trade Management Agenda' focuses on the burning issues of the day: In addition to the top priorities in global trade management (GTM) in 2015, these include the importance of preferential agreements and the business community’s assessment of the planned Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and US. The Global Trade Management Agenda 2015 is based on the results of an online survey of logistics and global trade experts conducted in the summer of 2014. The study is a collaborative project of AEB and Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg, DHBW) in Stuttgart.

RESEARCH: Reshaping The Interface Between Marketing And Operations In Globalizing Furniture Supply Chains
 

Over the past few decades, international fragmentation of production and offshore outsourcing have remarkably altered the organization of Western supply chains. Particularly in low-tech, manufacturing sectors, the fast spread of global production network has forced managers to reconsider the configuration of their supply chains, including the alignment between marketing and operations. Although the marketing-operations interface (MOI) is crucial in supply chain management, the understanding of globalization’s effects on this process remains uncertain and unclear. By focusing on the furniture industry in USA and Italy, this paper uses ...
