DIGITAL & TECHNOLOGIES LAB

A COMMUNITY AT THE SERVICE OF SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSFORMATION

As fundamental as it is complex, the digitalization of the supply chain is at the heart of France Supply Chain's reflections and actions. 

The Lab Digital et Technologies is a working group that brings together professionals from industry, logistics, consulting and the publishing of digital and technological solutions for the supply chain. Its aim is to address current business issues through agile and dynamic workshops.

Members are divided into 5 squads, each led by a manager, in which they share and co-construct deliverables for the community.
