Digital always-on supply chain
These supply chains provide better efficiency, visibility, and customer service across a variety of industries. This new model of supply chain is more connected and intelligent than previous models, and is driven by increasing consumer demands for always-on options and services.
Transportation consumes about one-third of global energy and is growing fast, so there is tremendous potential to move our energy system toward renewable, sustainable new models, including wind energy and sustainable aviation fuels.
