Tomorrow’s supply chains will be connected and self – orchestrated ecosystems. Next-level supply chains will be connected end-to-end. All relevant internal functions will be connected using one common data network, from R&D and procurement through manufacturing, logistics, and marketing and sales. In addition, all relevant supply chain partners,such as suppliers (including tier 1, tier 2 and even beyond), logistics service providers, customers and innovation partners will also be integrated within the supply chain.PwC | Connected and autonomous supply chain ecosystems 2025
