What's Ahead for the Supply Chain

Blume Global expects to see big changes in the supply chain over the next few months and years. Here's what they see.


Augmented Reality is Making the Supply Chain Better and More Efficient

Almost everything that we buy in stores; what we eat, wear or entertain ourselves with at home, go through a supply chain. This makes businesses that make these products among the top GDP contributors. However, the main problem that companies in this sector face is the high cost of moving products through a supply chain from one point to another. That is the leading reason why many companies are looking for ways to improve their supply chain processes and save money. Emerging technology is a perfect answer to this.


Deploying Robots as Needed Eases Adoption

Disruptive technologies have altered the landscape in modern organizations. In the realization of this, business leaders are coping with these technologies and identifying opportunities and challenges that their businesses can address if they adopt them. In warehouses, for instance, robots have proven to be efficient and quick compared to humans. However, although managers and leaders in the supply chain may be longing to acquire robots in their companies, huge amounts of money and expertise can be obstacles.


How FedEx and UPS are helping victims of Hurricane Dorian

When disaster strikes an area, survivors are in crucial need of supplies in order to survive the hardship. In most cases homes, roads, and many structures are decimated making it tricky for survivors to access life saving goods. When a disaster hits an island – survival becomes even tougher. Hurricane Dorian barreled into the Abaco Island and Grand Bahamas at the beginning of September. The Category 5 hurricane slowed down considerably – hovering over the islands from September 1st to the 3rd  leaving considerable destruction in its wake. As of today over 1,000 people are still missing with over 70,000 homeless.


Where Have All the Truckdrivers Gone

The trade industry is not the only career path affected by this generation’s connotation of blue collar jobs. For years it was ingrained in high school students that a college degree was the way to prestige and wealth. In fact, I spent the better part of my twenties convincing people that I had a “real job” in the restaurant industry. As the negative perception spread, the need for laborious jobs increased and entire industries faced a shortage of workers. In an industry that relies heavily on long-haul truck drivers to move goods – the supply chain and logistics business have seen first-hand how far this negative perception can go. According to a report by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) – last year saw 60,000 truck driver positions go unfilled. That number could potentially increase to 160,000 by 2028.
