Intelligent distribution optimizes distribution decisions, at each stop of the cold chain, based on the remaining shelf life of each pallet. It creates uniform shelf-life pallets and shipments and is key to maximizing the shelf life of produce at each process step in the end-to-end supply chain. Implementing these approaches can cut losses in half for retailers and growers.
What are the costs and benefits of market-based environmental policies and how are they relevant to supply chain leaders? Public policy outcomes addressing ‘tragedy of the commons’ issues affect supply chain operations, and the decisions supply chain practitioners make. Here, we explore the pros and cons of market-based policies compared to other approaches to environmental policy.
Realizing Africa’s Potential, Market-Driven Environmental Policies, Intelligent Distribution of Produce Enabled by Pallet-level Temperature Monitoring
The tremendous untapped potential of Africa’s abundant resources is being decimated by autocratic regimes, corruption, and conflicts. A Russian defeat in Ukraine could help weaken Russia’s grip on Africa, diminishing the cycle of corruption and instability in Africa. Russia and its proxy, the Wagner Group, enrich themselves by propping up pernicious regimes. Profits from natural resources are thereby not reinvested in the countries’ infrastructure, education, and healthcare.
Supply chain leaders are in a position to lobby for or influence public policies. What policy is in their best interest when dealing with ‘tragedy of the commons’ issues, such as pollution or resource depletion? Is it better to maintain business as usual/laissez-faire, support regulation, or advocate for market-based solutions? Here we explore the tradeoffs.
