Supply chains and the solutions used for managing them have become increasingly important as businesses become more global and interconnected. With barcode labels intersecting every aspect of the supply chain and bridging processes from manufacturing, warehousing and distribution to consumer use, its important to stay ahead of the curve.
Every year, Loftware conducts an annual survey to get a pulse on the impact of labeling on today’s supply chain. This year, Loftware polled over 800 supply chain and IT professionals from organizations across all major industries in 32 different countries to gather insights on what they saw as the major trends in Enterprise Labeling for 2017.
Our fourth annual “Top 5 Trends in Enterprise Labeling” report outlines significant shifts in labeling that are impacting global supply chains at an unprecedented level. These trends include labeling being viewed as a global initiative, the evolution of labels and label data, the rising focus on the bimodal supply chain, the extension of labeling for supply chain partners both upstream and downstream, and the importance of labeling expertise, professional services, and support.
