Outlook on the Logistics & Supply Chain Industry 2013
The World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Councils are unique multistakeholder groups that convene leading experts from academia, international organizations, and the public and private sectors to provide input to global collaboration and decision-making processes.
The Council on Logistics & Supply Chain Systems brings together global strategic thinkers broadly representative of the logistics and supply chain sector. The Council explores opportunities for the sector relevant to the Forum’s mission of improving the state of the world, and recommends topics and actions to the World Economic Forum’s Supply Chain & Transport CEO community.
The following collection of short essays highlights some of the topics discussed by the Council over the past year, in the voices of individual Council Members. Reflecting the conversations, the ssays are clustered around the issues of trade facilitation, opportunities and threats, notably climate change adaptation, connectivity and the intelligent use of data. They also focus on specific applications, particularly agricultural supply chains and regional imperatives.
