Judging by the full auditorium at our annual DHL Global Life Sciences and Healthcare Conference in June, logistics managers are very keen to explore digital transformation and see the latest trends and innovations at first hand. This increasing appetite for digitalization is excellent news for the industry – the life sciences and healthcare sector is ranked in the bottom 20th percentile of the Industry Digitalization Index, as presented by McKinsey & Company.
Ahead of the official start of the conference in Singapore, many delegates took the opportunity to visit of DHL’s Advanced Regional Center, a new state-of-the art multi-user hub, and our Asia Pacific Innovation Center, which showcases the latest trends and innovations in logistics.
New capabilities, disruptive business models, and opportunities for action bring a sense of urgency to transform. Our recently published report titled ‘The future of life sciences and healthcare logistics’ explores the most important trends and technologies currently enabling digital transformation in the life sciences and healthcare supply chain.
