What is it?

Disruption forces us to change the way we think or do business. It compels us to look at things in a whole new way and turning challenges into opportunities in the process. Before we can push the logistics industry to adopt, implement and embrace innovation, we need to first ask ourselves: ‘How can innovation drive logistics businesses in 2017 and beyond?’ In Supply Chain Hackathon 2017, we aim to bring together the brightest young talent at one of the industry’s top events – the Supply Chain Week 2017.

The logistics and supply chain world is facing unprecedented challenges from disruptive technologies. Talent will be hard hit in terms of displacement and challenges in attracting the top talent will only escalate. How then are logistics companies, supply chain professionals and businesses going to innovate, adapt and drive business growth in the next 5 years?
