Supply chains face continued disruption and multiple crises, with volatile production volumes, material shortages, rising transportation costs, supply chain bottlenecks and shortages network and workforce, all exacerbating strong consumer demand. Record inventory levels are accelerating the integration of vehicle logistics into total supply chain management and reshaping the way organizations and leaders – from materials sourcing to production to sales and distribution – develop and implement new strategies with outbound logistics teams to improve efficiency and increase product availability in the market.
