Grainger Industrial Supply Chain Solutions (GISS) has unveiled a new research paper to explore how war industrial production, production and logistics will play out in the future.
“We want to bring this new research into the mainstream,” Grainger CEO and founder Tim Denton said.
“It is the first study to explore the intersection of the logistics, supply chain, and war industry.”
This is an important part of our strategic planning as we continue to adapt to a new era of warfare.
“There is a growing interest in the logistics of war, particularly logistics of supply chains.”
The report will help the business community understand what is required for successful supply chain operations, and what technologies will improve the delivery of goods in a timely manner.
“Our goal is to help businesses understand how to better manage supply chain and operational challenges.”GISS chief economist David Beasley said the paper could help companies make more informed decisions about the logistics and supply chain issues they face.
“What makes it valuable is that it covers the major players in the supply chain,” Mr Beasley explained.
“You can expect that the study will help businesses to identify their business and operational risk.”
