It’s no question that COVID-19 has severely disrupted supply chains around the world, exposing blind spots, communication issues, and many other vulnerabilities. The pressure for organizations to be nimble and agile has made greater visibility into and command of supply chains a top priority.
To understand organizations’ biggest challenges, where product loss is occurring in the supply chain, and what companies need to do to move forward in 2021, Cloudleaf teamed up with Sapio Research to survey over 200 U.S. supply chain decision-makers across the pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries.
Key findings include:
- 92% of total respondents said they could not 100% trust the data coming in from tracking products within their supply chain.
- 99% of respondents in the pharmaceutical industry claimed to be using some sort of manual processes to achieve supply chain visibility.
- 87% of respondents in the pharmaceutical industry said they do not have 100% visibility into the condition of products in their supply chain during the last mile of delivery.
- 97% of food & beverage industry respondents experience at least some product spoilage during fresh food shipments.
We think you will agree, the results are fascinating.
