The brand-new December issue of Supply Chain Digital is now live!
Adorning the cover of December’s is none other than James Chin Moody, the CEO and Co-Founder of courier service Sendel, which is staking a claim in the Australian market.
Although just a few years old, the company is challenging the sector’s established players and is the country’s highest rated courier service, posting impressive month-on-month growth figures averaging 20% over the last two years.
In an exclusive interview, Moody reveals his hopes for rapid expansion down under, followed by international growth.
This month, Supply Chain Digital also follows up on AT Kearney’s recent ‘Mobilising for excellence in supply chain management’ report, speaking to one if its authors Mike Hales.
A partner at AT Kearney, Hales outlines the main takeaways from the report, and speaks about how companies can break out from the pack in the supply chain market and establish themselves as one of the industry’s leading lights.
Also featured this month is a run-down of the world’s top 10 biggest container vessels.
A number of companies feature prominently this month, as Supply Chain Digital looks to shine a light on business transformations and innovations that are setting the bar in the supply chain and procurement sectors.
Okada Manita, Gulf Health Council and A123 Systems are just a few of the blue-chip companies featured this month.
