C.H. Robinson to invest USD 1 billion
C.H. Robinson has committed to investing USD 1 billion in technology over the next five years, doubling its previous USD 1 billion investment in technology over the last ten years. With more than 1000 data scientists, engineers and developers, the company is continuing to invest in global talent in this critical area, making an already strong team even stronger.
“We are a platform-driven solutions company with technology built by and for supply chain experts, powered by our information advantage,” CEO Bob Biesterfeld said. “It’s when these tools are leveraged by the smartest and most relentless experts—who really understand and are committed to our customers’ business—that we create extreme value in the supply chain for our clients’ benefit.”
Speaking at the council of supply chain management professionals’ conference, Biesterfeld explained how big data and digital technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analytics, are having a profound impact on the supply chain marketplace. He discussed why only those who leverage both technology and talent will compete and win on the supply chain in the future. (mw)
