Supply Chain Tech and Evolution Talks

The rapid evolution of technology over the past several decades has had a profound impact on our generation. Cell phones have evolved into handheld computers;  television sets have become home computers. Needless to say, technology is evolving rapidly. On the other hand, the evolution of the supply chain industry has evolved much slower in comparison, until recently, that is.

In his upcoming conferences, Nick Vyas, Director of USC Marshall’s Center for Global Supply Chain Management, will touch upon how technology is a driving force in the supply chain industry’s evolution. The technology itself is integral, but it is up to us to embrace and harness these technological advances and apply them to our professional and personal lives. Just think of the impact that drone deliveries and autonomous vehicles will have on the warehousing and transportation sectors alone. Wearable devices, such as Google glass will enable real time communication in ways never thought possible. There are many things to be excited about rather than scared about when it comes to technology.
