The end-to-end supply chain

In his article for Port Technology International, ESC Secretary General Godfried Smit explains the end-to-end supply chain and its recent changes and challenges.

Due to Covid and the war in Ukraine, the notion of a supply chain and the importance of its healthy functioning has become better understood by citizens. “Suddenly, customers in a supermarket, looking at the empty shelves of vegetable oil, started to realize how the goods they were purchasing achieved their destination through a supply chain”. 

Godfried describes how having a better visibility, timely available information, and efficient performance of hinterland transport, including modal shift, can improve the functioning of a logistics chain. Sustainability, digitalization, and blockchain solutions play in its favour as well.
