The $14 trillion reason you should care about the shipping containers

Most likely, those goods—as well as your smartphone, refrigerator, and virtually every other object in your home—once were loaded onto a large container in another country and traveled thousands of miles via ships crossing the ocean before ultimately arriving at your doorstep. Today, an estimated 90% of the world’s goods are transported by sea, with 60% of that—including virtually all of your imported fruits, gadgets, and appliances—packed in large steel containers.

Digital transformation in the travel industry. Few industries have suffered more at the hands of Covid-19 than international travel, which ground to a halt in early 2020 as borders closed and millions of people were ordered to stay at home.

Digital transformation in the travel industry

Last year saw the sharpest annual decline in air traffic on record: passenger demand was down 65.9% on 2019’s total, according to the International Air Transport Association. The UN World Tourism Organization estimates that the economic impact on the industry in 2020 alone was $1tn (£710bn) – a loss that put about 120 million jobs at risk.

The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly transformed the packaging industry in several ways, not least by accelerating the need for digital adoption, an area in which the industry has historically lagged.

Value-creation opportunities in digital for packaging companies

To understand the current state of play and the opportunity space for digital and analytics (DnA) in the industry, we launched a global survey with industry executives backed up by interviews with industry experts covering multiple packaging substrates and regions. Our work has uncovered four key findings.

First, the industry is, not surprisingly, still in the early days of digital adoption, lagging telecoms, banking, and advanced industries such as automotive and aerospace. However, according to executives in the surveyed packaging companies, DnA is a clear priority and is seen as an important value-creation lever. So far, the areas that are most advanced in terms of digital adoption are, in order, manufacturing, supply chain, and HR and talent management.

How Tech Adoption Fuels China’s Innovation Boom

I’m Curt Nickisch. A few weeks back, people in Shanghai’s downtown were surprised when a swarm of lights appeared in the night sky. They craned their necks watching these lights converge amid the skyscrapers forming a huge pattern. Now, this wasn’t a light show, as it turns out, or an alien invasion. It was a constellation of illuminated drones, and that swarm took shape as a giant QR code. Now outside of China, this marketing stunt might have really bothered people, too commercial, too invasive, too dystopian, but the willingness of consumers in China to engage with technology and new things, that’s what intrigues and inspires today’s guest. The rise of the Asian corporation. “The best time to plant a tree,” a Chinese proverb reminds us, “was 20 years ago.

Mining risk: Resiliency amid volatility

To build a resilient organization, mining companies should embrace scenario planning as part of their strategic planning processes. Doing this effectively can position miners to better anticipate a range of global disruptors that could affect their organizations. To help companies on this path, we outline four divergent scenarios based on current trends and uncertainties and consider how they might play out in the mining sector. How the pandemic transformed digital manufacturing.

In 2020, industrial digitization faced its biggest test to date.

How the pandemic transformed digital manufacturing

Confronted with the largest health and economic crisis in recent history, companies across sectors were forced into extraordinary measures to protect their people and maintain operations. While some contended with keeping the operations running in the face of shortages of workers or raw materials, others struggled to keep up with the sudden spike in demand. Did the technologies of the ongoing Fourth Industrial Revolution (or Industry 4.0) help those companies in their efforts? Analysis of a new McKinsey survey’s results suggests three outcomes: a win for companies that had already scaled digital technologies, a reality check for those that were still scaling, and a wake-up call for those that hadn’t started on their Industry 4.0 journeys.

A path to recovery and sustainable growth in 10 industry sectors. Lessons from growth outperformers in logistics. The economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the critical value of global supply chains and the logistics companies that keep them moving.

Lessons from growth outperformers in logistics

While the pandemic’s impact on the sector has been less severe than that on travel or transportation infrastructure players, market capitalization of logistics companies never­theless declined by almost 3 percent between February and July. Logistics players rely on their global networks to achieve scale within a highly competitive and relatively low-margin industry. With trade demand plunging by as much as 22 percent in the second quarter and significant drops continu­ing in the third, many road-, air-, and ocean-transport companies are reporting large declines in volumes from the same periods last year.

Despite these challenges, the crisis presents oppor­tunities for logistics firms to revisit their business models, enter new markets, and innovate around new service offerings. These modular ICU rooms turn hospital parking lots into COVID-19 units. Accelerating smart manufacturing. As COVID-19 necessitates greater agility and speed, leaders should consider engaging in smart manufacturing ecosystems to accelerate digital transformation and drive results in the next normal.

Accelerating smart manufacturing

Introduction On March 11, the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, was officially declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization.1 As regions in North America and Europe faced critical shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect frontline workers and ventilators to treat patients, global supply chain bottlenecks and scarcity of supply put pressure on overwhelmed health care systems in the hardest-hit regions. Leaders in many countries were desperate for supplies, and many turned to the manufacturing industry for assistance. The solution? Regional manufacturing networks ramped up production of the much-needed equipment.

How manufacturing ecosystems accelerate production. How COVID-19 Will Change Retail — And What It Means for Brands.
