Hello and welcome to the April issue of Supply Chain Digital!

Our cover star this month is global railway behemoth Deutsche Bahn. We sent Sean Galea-Pace to Berlin to sit down with Uwe Günther, Chief Procurement Officer, as he discusses the procurement methods his company has utilised amidst a significant digital transformation.

We also spoke with Tom Derry, CEO of the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) and how supplier relationship management remains crucial in the evolving digital landscape. “We’re moving into an era where innovation and collaboration between the OEMs and the suppliers is more recognised as a source of value,” he says.

Elsewhere, Simon Mardle, Retail Supply Chain Principal at Capgemini, tells us how the success of digital transformation journeys starts with leadership recognising the value of data and a “single source of truth”.

With the likes of Apple, Mercedes-Benz and Ford investing heavily into blockchain technology, Eric Piscini, CEO of Citizens Reserve, looks at the current and future landscape of blockchain in the supply chain.

Our top 10 this month looks at the supply chain management and logistics qualifications to watch out for.

Don’t forget to check out our exclusive reports with Coupa Software, Cirque du Soleil and more.
