Today, proactivity is a requirement within the supply chain world—an industry that cannot afford to be anything but opportunistic. In the sharing economy, we receive networked opportunities for business that might not exist in a different ecosystem. This network of networks has taken the supply chain world by storm, encouraging companies to leverage digital and physical capabilities in a way unlike before. However, many are not taking advantage of this unique economy as well as they should be.
Despite 26% of industry professionals dismissing the inherent benefit of taking part in the sharing economy, it is in fact, a supply chain strategy that is just beginning to develop. To leverage the sharing economy, your supply chain must be expertly managed and optimized to balance risk and reward, all while marrying digital, physical and human resources.
