Is Emoji Becoming a Language?

Virtual communication has put in front of us new possibilities of interaction. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram and a network of other apps calls for improved and more dynamic means of expression by regularly releasing fresh emoji, ready to serve to the distribution of less ambiguous messages. 

The simple rule in traditional supply chains was to store “maximum possible quantity of every product, everywhere, every time”. This rule had to be followed because of lack of information flow and planning mechanisms in the supply chain.

Supply chains have evolved and are much different from what they used to be say 2-3 decades back. Modern supply chains equipped with better information & intelligence are able to predict product demand well in advance, plan accordingly and deliver the items close to when they are needed.

You now know the stark difference between a warehouse and a distribution center and how the evolution happened over time. Does this mean that warehouses no longer exist or they don’t serve any purpose? You will be mistaken if you believe that. Warehouses still exist and serve a purpose. A good example would be how inventory is pre-built months in advance to meet the high seasonal demand and is stored in typical warehouses before being sent to a distribution center for customer service. However, the importance of warehouses in supply chain has gone down and the distribution centers have now emerged as the nerve centers of the modern supply chains.

It fascinates me to hear that we are ahead of the curve against other industries, because it feels like we are still using chisels and slate in a lot of instances. Visibility is a number one priority, as is being able to capture data and use analytics to make decisions faster.

Shared ownership of vehicles, rental and ‘fractional ownership’ schemes, and the global growth of app-based ride-hailing services are all shifting the traditional idea of vehicle ownership towards something more like fleet ownership. That is having an effect on the automotive supply chain, with significant consequences for aftermarket sales and services.
