The key challenges in change management for your logistics or line feed processes include resistance to change from employees, lack of resources or expertise, insufficient communication or planning, and unexpected disruptions to the supply chain.
There isn’t a one size fits all, but there are common challenges, key principles, and effective strategies we can share with you.

A lack of end-to-end visibility is a major supply chain risk factor and a potential source of vulnerability. The right technology and reporting increases agility and gives greater resilience to complex, risky and under stress automotive supply chains.
Access to the right real-time supply chain performance data, improves decision-making and automates continuous improvement.
