The AWS Partner Network (APN) is excited to introduce the AWS Supply Chain Competency, featuring top AWS Partners who provide professional services and cloud-native supply chain solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
These solutions enable companies of every size and segment to enhance their responsiveness to customers, strengthen their resilience to disruptions, and become more responsible to the environment and global community.
The world is grappling with a perfect storm of supply chain challenges triggered by a global pandemic, geopolitical conflicts, weather, and labor disruptions. This has resulted in rampant product shortages, unplanned price increases, and chronic uncertainty across global supply chain for companies of all sizes and industries.
Customers are looking for supply chain technology capabilities to meet these challenges. The AWS Supply Chain Competency helps customers quickly and easily identify AWS Partners across the end-to-end supply chain domains of Plan, Source, Make, Move, and Enable, resulting in better customer experience and lower supply chain operating costs.
