Guest Keynote: The Supply Chain of the Future, Forged by AI & Robotics

As the coronavirus pandemic has led to a sharp increase in e-commerce demand, distribution sites have had to handle a vast amount of diverse products on a daily basis, and they face the urgent challenges of not only collecting, analyzing and utilizing data about products and shipments, but also integrating their stock and distribution management operations.
At the same time, manufacturers are undertaking initiatives to transform their operations and create new business using the latest technologies. The manufacturing sector in advanced manufacturing nations is actively engaged in digital transformation, such as the shift to Industry 4.0, and major manufacturers are also ramping up their utilization of outside resources.
