Episode #113 - Is Data the Missing Link in the Broken Supply Chain?

Guest: Matthew Wright, founder & CEO, Specright

Sustainability and supply chain, supply chain and sustainability. Over the past three years not a month has gone by where unPACKed didn't touch on one or both of these two issues. This episode approaches the issues from an entirely new angle.  Matthew Wright from Specright explains that the devil is in the data, and with proper data tools and management, companies can anticipate supply chain issues and thus increase sustainability by eliminating any previously undiscoverable hiccups in the supply chain.
