The supply chain function is a critical element of a business within the manufacturing sector as well as those organisations in the Middle East that deliver their goods and services. This is a constant area of focus for most organistions to ensure that there is continuous improvement in the supply chain process, whether that may be by reducing costs, reducing lead times or improving customer satisfaction.
Recently there has been a huge test for the supply chain and the performance of organisations with multiple companies being forced to deal with manpower shortages, lower productivity levels and implementation of safety processes. A major area of attention has been for businesses to focus on ensuring that their supply chain is robust which would include optimising demand and supply planning, sourcing strategies, last mile deliveries and logistics services. Recently, the emirate of Abu Dhabi announced a new delivery process involving drones to provide medical supplies using 40 stations by 2022. The drones will support safe delivery of medical supplies and vaccines, amongst other products.

An essential part of the supply chain function revolves around procurement, which directly impacts an organisation bottom-line and is a strong contributor to overall revenues. To optimise the function, it is important that firms embrace digital transformation developments and strive for transparency in processes and implement risk management processes.
Supply chain and procurement experts will be in higher demand in the mid to long term, supporting their employer by providing market and technology guidance, negotiating contracts that affect the business’ expenses and profits, and can monitor the performance of their network of vendors.
