Manifest 2023: Unveiling the Future of Logistics and Supply Chain

May 19, 2023

In this technology-driven era, the logistics and supply chain industries are transforming at an unprecedented pace. This subject was the focus of Manifest 2023, where industry experts deliberated on the sector’s future. Real-time data and AI have greatly influenced transparency and visibility in these sectors, especially in the way Dray providers operate. This has shifted the focus from just the customer to every player in the value chain.

However, Manifest 2023 uncovered that technology, though instrumental, is not the ultimate solution. The logistics sector flourishes on cooperation and mutual goals across all participants. Future growth lies in this symbiotic relationship.

The next stage extends beyond visibility, utilizing data and AI for predictive decision-making and optimizing operations. It was during the engaging discussions at Manifest 2023, where the industry’s leading voices – Paul Brashier of ITS Logistics, Larry Cuddy from Envase, Stanton Green at Blumberg Capital, Abhishek Kapur of NEXT Trucking, and Weston LaBar from Cargomatic – elucidated these themes.

Manifest 2023 proved to be an insightful platform where these emerging trends in the logistics and supply chain sectors were expertly dissected, setting the tone for a future defined by collaboration, data utilization, and AI-driven decision-making.
