Over the past year I’ve had the chance to speak to a variety of senior business and sustainability leaders about supply chain topics and their implications on a range of ESG issues. What is apparent from these conversations is that the supply chain is increasingly considered to be one of the most impactful components of a company’s sustainability efforts.
As we are hopefully moving beyond the pandemic, one positive trend that began during the height of 2020 supply chain upheavals was the emergence of the Micro Fulfillment Center (MFC). Supply chains made swift seismic shifts to accommodate new business models during pandemic and have gained a new attitude toward flexibility and fixing what remains broken. Technology exists to accomplish additional changes that will help manufacturers, brands, retailers, and supply chains meet a new and uncertain future.
