Regarding the trends in supply chain, what comes to my head is the unusual trend that may hit the products that you are dealing with. An example is the volatile price changes of oil products that is largely dependent on the world market prices. Another trend is the online ordering of products which is now getting popular especially for regular customers. All they do is to click on the order tab and the order is forwarded to the dispatching unit.

Increased use of technology in the supply chain business is a popular trend lately especially in the developed world western world where the use of robotics are being incorporated to the fibre of the business. Also, the exploration of all social media in advertising is a huge push for most supply chain business as people need to know more about your business in order to patronize you.

I think one of the biggest supply chain trends in 2018 and 2019 is Artificial Intelligence technology. There are a lot of use cases of AI in the logistics industry. For example, warehousing operations. The most obvious use case of AI in warehouse automation is a prediction of the demand for products. As a result, some products can be shipped to the regional warehouses reducing the transportations expenses. Statistics shows that 30% of UK warehousing jobs will be automated in the next few years.

Artificial intelligence was being anticipated since 10 years ago and I wonder why until now the AI has not arrived to the logistics industry. Maybe it is the lack of funds for the research and development or perhaps the industry magnates are busy with their businesses and has no time for the needed innovation for the modernization particularly with robotics and artificial intelligence.
