In the 2016 MHI Annual Industry Report—Accelerating Change: How Innovation is Driving Digital, Always-on Supply Chains—released in April and available as a free download on MHI.org—59 percent of the nearly 900 survey respondents say autonomous vehicles and drones are having at least some impact on supply chains. Further, 37 percent believe these technologies have the potential to provide either competitive advantage or to disrupt the industry.

With adoption rates expected to grow 50 percent over the next six to 10 years, where within supply chain operations will autonomous robotic vehicles and drones make the biggest impact, and why? That depends on whom you ask, and what timeframe you reference.

Carol Miller, VP of Marketing and Communications for MHI, opens her article about the evolution of supply chain technology on the last issue of MHI Solutions magazine with this powerful statement. Matt Yearling contributed for this article and you can read it here.
