Today Buyers Meeting Point welcomes John Manners-Bell as our guest. John is the CEO of Transport Intelligence, a leading supplier of market solutions to the global logistics industry. Prior to establishing Transport Intelligence, John worked as an analyst in consultancies specializing in international trade, transport, and logistics. He also spent a number of years as European marketing manager for UPS Supply Chain Solutions working at locations across Europe, including France, Netherlands and Germany.

John has written a number of books, including Logistics and Supply Chains in Emerging Markets, Supply Chain Risk, and Global Logistics Strategies.

In today's conversation, we focus on the future of supply chain and logistics - a topic that Transport Intelligence will be covering at their event in London in June 2016: #TiLondon16. In specific, we discuss:

  • What we can surmise about Amazon's forward looking strategy from the actions they are taking today.
  • The broad approach to business - including customer satisfaction, big data, and analytics that every company must engage in, whether it is their primary focus or not.
  • The 'fringe' technologies of today and the commercial promise they offer for tomorrow: autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, drones, and IoT
