The Supply Chain Buzz is Supply Chain Now’s regular Monday livestream, held at 12n ET each week. This show focuses on some of the leading stories from global supply chain and global business, always with special guests – the most important of which is the live audience!

This week’s edition of The Buzz was a Digital Transformers edition, and it featured hosts Scott Luton and Kevin L. Jackson. They opened the conversation by talking about the ever-increasing number of Phishing attempts… with UPS and Amazon, two large supply chain providers, topping the list as the most impersonated companies on the Internet.

In this livestream, created in collaboration with a live Supply Chain Now audience, Scott and Kevin discussed:

• Transformation research from the American Productivity & Quality Center (APQC) finding that while 91 percent of inventory management respondents are digitizing their data and processes, only 31 percent are using predictive analytics and only 26 percent are using AI

• Opportunities to leverage data and analytics via ‘Supply Chain 4.0’ – by optimizing operations, reducing manual errors, even leveraging automation

• The dynamic pendulum that swings between nearshoring, onshoring, and offshoring, and the challenge associated with trying to optimize on a moving target
