2023 SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards
Recognizing the world’s best companies, products and services
in the supply chain technology and logistics industry.
Like most other industries, the supply chain & logistics sectors are currently experiencing immense change; and like all change, this brings both risk and opportunity. New technology, new market entrants, new customer expectations, and new business models. There are many ways the sector could develop to meet these challenges, some evolutionary, others more revolutionary.
Customer expectations are increasing greatly. Both individuals and businesses expect to get goods faster, more flexibly, and – in the case of consumers – at low or no delivery cost. Manufacturing is becoming more and more customized, which is good for customers but hard work for the logistics industry. Add it all up and the sector is under acute and growing pressure to deliver a better service at an ever lower cost.
Supply chain & logistics companies are facing an era of unprecedented change as digitization takes hold and customer expectations evolve. New technologies are enabling greater efficiency and more collaborative operating models. They’re also re-shaping the marketplace in ways that are only just beginning to become apparent. New entrants, whether they be start-ups or the industry’s own customers and suppliers, are also shaking up the sector.
With the growing number of innovative supply chain & logistics technology solutions and services in the marketplace, how can you stand out in a crowded market?
As advances in supply chain and logistics technology applications transform our economy and society, we aim to highlight the BREAKTHROUGH SupplyTech solutions, services and companies around the world each year.
The SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards program aims to perform the most comprehensive evaluation of supply chain & logistics technology tools, services and companies today, with nominations coming in from the best and brightest biotechnology innovators around the world.
We are passionate about what technology can do for the world and we are committed to providing a platform for recognition dedicated to standout SupplyTech companies, services and products throughout the world.
The reorganization of supply chains using advanced technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, and autonomous robotics, is transforming the model of supply chain management from a linear one, in which instructions flow from supplier to producer to distributor to consumer, and back, to a more integrated model in which information flows in an omnidirectional manner to the supply chain.
With acquisitions, partnerships, IPOs, and fundraising still increasing, SupplyTech’s prominence has risen higher than it was before the COVID pandemic. The industry’s response to the crisis, its record of innovation, and its reputation continue to grow.
With the growth in the number of SupplyTech companies in the industry, how can you stand out in a crowded market? How do you break out from the industry noise?
