Unlock the circular economy: Key tools and strategies

Are you prepared for the future of sustainable supply chains? The Circular Economy is here, and it's poised to revolutionize the way we do business. Discover the key tools and strategies that will reshape your supply chain for a sustainable future in our white paper “How Digital Technology is Transforming the Supply Chain into a Circular Economy”.

Redefining product design

In the Circular Economy, product design takes center stage. It's about creating products and packaging that seamlessly reenter the value-added cycle when it's time for repair or refurbishment. This necessitates a complete rethink of production facilities, manufacturing processes, packaging, and logistics concepts. Product cycles are shrinking as components become more modular. Questions to ask yourself that our white paper dives into are:

  • How can product design drive circularity?

  • What role does complexity play in logistics?

  • How can you expand your service portfolio effectively?

Complexity and compartmentalization in logistics

The Circular Economy will reshape the roles of shippers and logistics service providers. Merely delivering a product won't suffice; the ability to facilitate returns or repairs will be equally critical. Article numbers will evolve into pieces of a product's mosaic, carrying detailed information about material, composition, and product cycle. Supply chain networks will expand to encompass repair, refurbishment, and returns specialists, making logistics more intricate and compartmentalized.
