PorterLogic Co-founder Talks Supply Chain Growing Pains on The Logistics of Logistics Podcast

August 18, 2023 4:50 PM

ATLANTA, Ga. (Aug. 18, 2023) — Anya Skomorokhova, co-founder and chief operating officer of Porte Logic, was the featured guest on the latest episode of 'The Logistics on Logistics.' Anya and Host Joe Lynch discussed the challenges companies face as they scale their operations in the context of supply chain management.

On the pod, Anya talked about several growing pains supply chain organizations often see, including:  

  • Data-driven decision-making: To scale effectively, organizations need to empower their employees to make data-driven decisions. This involves cleaning up data, eliminating data silos and building trust in the data they use.
  • Challenges with manual processes: Many companies start with manual processes that work well at a smaller scale but need to be more sustainable as they grow. These manual methods can lead to inefficiencies and challenges, especially when organizations expand or go remote.
  • Data silos: Supply chains often struggle with manual functions and data silos. Automation and AI solutions are discussed, but many companies need more time to be ready for these technologies due to their reliance on manual processes.
  • Scaling and complexity: The point at which manual processes start causing problems can vary based on a company's vertical integration and complexity. For those heavily involved in manufacturing and warehousing, issues can arise with 50 to 100 employees or $20-50 million in revenue.
  • Modernizing supply chain: Traditional waterfall approaches to modernization, which involve lengthy planning and implementation phases, are becoming outdated. Agile, modular systems are recommended, allowing for incremental improvements and adaptation to the rapidly changing business environment.
