Stay informed with Chain Reaction

Embark on a journey beyond the surface with me, Tony Hines, as we unravel the intricacies of global supply chains and the high-stakes game of tech investments. Imagine navigating a terrain where billions are bet on innovations like AI, robotics, and the Internet of Things, aiming for an efficient, resilient logistics future. Our discussion takes a hard look at the paradox of rampant spending amidst fears of squandered funds in tech projects. Grasp the full picture as we dissect the lightning-fast digital transformation on track to hit $76 billion by 2026, and why companies gamble big on tech for a competitive edge, despite doubts over the return on their hefty investments.

Prepare to dissect the top five supply chain priorities that are reshaping the landscape as global tensions, environmental sustainability, and digitalization demand our attention. We're weighing the delicate balance between reshoring production and the advantages of a global supply network, and the role of technology in boosting transparency. We'll also tackle how the concept of resilience is evolving, blending strategies like collaborative partnerships and the careful application of just-in-time systems. Coupled with this, we explore the complex aftermath of tech booms influencing metal markets and Brexit's ongoing economic drama. Join me for a session filled with critical insights and predictions, where the only constant is the rapid pace of change.
