Abstract


It is estimated that Supply Chains contribute close on 15% of the Gross National Product of South Africa. Strategically the efficiency of supply chains often drives the competitiveness of business.  Radical changes are happening throughout the world’s supply chains. Ecommerce has revolutionised the way retail businesses are thinking and automation (of physical and information processes) is changing processes in almost every sphere of the business.  Add Artificial Intelligence, and it is clear the supply chains of tomorrow are going to be very different to the supply chains of today.

This presentation focuses on presenting the future trends in supply chains and how industry and personnel will need to adapt to this rapidly changing environment.
