    TPMTech: Taking Stock of the Supply Chain Investment Priorities

    For the second year running, the 451 Research unit of S&P Global has surveyed logistics professionals to get a view into how shippers and 3PLs are prioritizing investment into a range of technologies. As shippers and 3PLs grapple with how to budget for investment in core products such as TMS, visibility, and purchase order management alongside newer imperatives such as automation and artificial intelligence, getting a picture of where the market in aggregate stands is increasingly important. In this one-on-one session, Mark Fontecchio, research analyst at 451, will discuss the findings of the benchmark survey and what they say about a market in flux due to tempered freight demand and a reduction in urgency post-pandemic.

    Delivering Resilience: S&P Global's Supply Chain Views for 2024 and Beyond

    Have global supply chain participants learned anything from a decade of disruptions culminating with COVID-19 and its unprecedented impact? What are the next supply chain risks that await manufacturers, retailers, agribusiness and others? What strategies are being put in place to deliver supply chain resilience? Are companies across manufacturing, retail, and logistics willing and able to pay for them? This session will answer these questions through the lens of S&P Global’s Supply Chain Look Forward Journal, to be published on the eve of TPM24. It will touch on geopolitical risks, industrial policy, financing, labor, and enabling technologies. We’ll also consider the specific issues facing the automotive and electronics supply chains as well as the challenges in decarbonizing logistics. This session will bring together leading S&P subject matter experts to discuss where they see the big picture headed in the next three to five years.
