Next generation digital supply chains – Session Report

October 10, 2020

In September 2020, members of the Digital Leadership Forum met over Zoom to discuss ‘Next generation digital supply chains‘.

Representatives from leading organisations including Unilever, AstraZeneca, EDF Energy, Highways England, BDO, First Rate Exchange Services, McKinsey & Company, Everledger and many more came together to discuss how supply chain management will become increasingly more efficient and transparent.

The session began with a presentation by François Soubien, Partner at McKinsey & Company who explored how they can test and learn with new supply chain technologies and understand how advancements with automation, IoT and advanced analytics are transforming the supply chain function towards a dynamic, self-operating flow of goods and services.

We then heard from Evgeny Gokhberg, Head of Europe & Head of Commercials at Everledger on how they are using blockchain technology to sustainably track and register products such as diamonds, minerals, wines and high-value art.
