Supply chain 4.0 is the application of above technologies to significantly improve the performance and customer satisfaction. Digitization brings Supply Chain 4.0, which will be faster, more flexible, more granular, more accurate and more efficient. Supply Chain Management has six dimensions in terms of use of digital technology.
