Letter: Too much supply chain data goes untapped

It’s right that the global supply chain has remained remarkably resilient despite wobbles ( Report, May 28). But these testing times have also exposed a distinct reticence to prepare for tomorrow’s challenges, which is most apparent within the agricultural sector.

The supply chain can never work at peak efficiency until there is a common “language” to join up the data dots. As it stands, about 90 per cent of farming data goes untapped — a huge missed opportunity for supply chain efficiency. Consequently, the industry has an ethical responsibility to address a perilously fragmented supply chain. Connecting the data is a good place to start.
