How the IoT is transforming your supply chain

Hosted by University of Leeds

Supply chains are the backbone of businesses, yet in the last 18 months we’ve seen how fragile they can be. Let’s look at how the IoT can help ensure your supply chain is future proofed.



Covid-19, the Suez Canal blockage and sustainability net-zero targets, to name but three huge recent challenges for those managing supply chains. Supply chains can ‘make or break’ a businesses, yet many modern supply chains no longer appear to be secure.

With us now living through what many believe is the 4th Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), we need to start applying new these techniques and technology to our supply chains.

This webinar will focus on how the Internet of Things (IoT) can be adopted into supply chains in any sector in order to create more robust, sustainable and resilient businesses.

We look at the lessons learnt from Covid-19 and the challenges faced by many businesses that simply did not survive. In particular, we’ll look at data from the automotive industry during this period to review business impacts and look at where new technology could be adopted.


Who should attend:

This webinar utilises data and examples from the manufacturing industry, but will still be applicable to anybody who works in digital transformation, supply chain management or sustainability.
