The Australian Logistics Council has concluded the inaugural ALC Supply Chain Technology Summit by identifying a number of key industry priorities that should be pursued to more effectively use technology in supply chains to improve their efficiency and safety.
Held in Melbourne on Thursday 10 May, the Summit featured presentations by leading Australian and international technology researchers, regulatory and policy-making bodies, designers and providers of technology systems and industry participants representing all parts of the supply chain.
More than 120 Summit attendees explored a range of factors that affect the deployment of technology throughout our supply chains, including regulatory barriers and policy inconsistencies, cost issues, skills issues and shortages in the workforce and a lack of understanding about some of the opportunities that technology presents.
