And A Third Set of Predictions....

I bring you yet another set of predictions concerning supply chain for 2013.  Adrian has a fantastic track record for seeing into the future so I would pay attention to this.  I will not give the excruciating details as you really should go over to the posting "Supply Chain and Logistics Predictions for 2013" at Logistics Viewpoints.  Here is the summary:

  1. Big Data, Social Media, Cloud Computing, and Mobile Technologies will continue to dominate the headlines
  2. User Interfaces for Supply Chain Apps Will Get a Social Makeover.
  3. “Siri” Comes to Enterprise Apps.
  4. The Robots Keep Coming.
  5. Continued Focus by Retailers and Service Providers on Innovating the Final Mile.
  6. Further Blurring of the Lines Between 3PLs, Tech Providers, and Consultants
  7.  Increased Adoption of Alternative Fuel Vehicles.
  8. More Programs and Partnerships to Address the Talent Shortage Problem
The themes continue to remain similar except Adrian clearly has a social bent to his ideas which I highlighted in an earlier post.  I can't imagine any of these predictions being too far off the mark.
