The May issue of Supply Chain Digital is now live!

Our cover feature this month comes from none other than Sprint. In an exclusive interview, we look at its unified supply chain and hear from its VP and Head of Supply Chain about how the company is well positioned to bring disruptive technology to the market.

“We will be the first in the USA with a mobile 5G network and we will have the devices supply chain to make it happen,” Fijman tells us.

We also take detailed look at how IBM is implementing its Food Trust Blockchain solution across the global food eco-system, working with a number of the industry’s leading names.

It says the benefits for doing so include cost efficiencies, transparency and traceability, lending yet more evidence that blockchain has made the transition from a buzzworthy concept to a practical business tool.

Its emergence in the coming years will make for fascinating viewing as business gets to grips with how to best utilise blockchain.

As usual, we put the procurement and supply chain operations of some of the world’s leading businesses under the microscope, with the likes of Starbucks and Qatar Airways featuring.

Elsewhere, you can check out our rundown of the top ten supply chain management software companies beginning on page 50, while Sarah Jacotine speaks with Esker’s COO, Steve Smith, to find out how paperless processes are freeing up resources and driving efficiencies in procurement.
