It’s fair to say that, for better or worse, logistics operations have historically functioned on a proverbial island. As the function of managing logistics operations has evolved from a cost center to value driver, the way logistics teams procure and use technology still tends to be isolated from other departments. That even goes for those departments where there is a tangible connection, from finance to customer service to sourcing to customs compliance. But there’s a line of thought that says this will change over the next decade, that logistics will be seen as part of a bigger whole in ways that allow for investment in technology that logistics operations personnel alone don’t always have the leverage to execute. This one-on-one discussion with Matt Tillman, CEO of accounts payable automation startup OpenEnvoy and previously the founder of Haven, will focus on what this process will look like, how buying personas in logistics may change, and the role that automation and minimally disruptive technology plays in this evolution.
