Heineken is one of the largest breweries in the world. However, like other industries, the beer industry is facing a number of challenges, such as supply chain disruptions, price increases, rising inflation, and a tight labour market.
This week, we talk to Heineken’s Hugo Timmerman about how they’re using the latest technology within their supply chain to increase the end-to-end visibility needed to cope with the constant changes, as they become one of the most connected breweries in the world.
Come join us as we discuss the Future of Supply Chain.
