Since before the pandemic, end-to-end management of the material value chain has been a challenging process. As a consequence, it is likely that the disruption brought on by the pandemic will create a lasting rupture. 

The most important calls to action will focus on the following subjects:

  • Speed to Market
  • Complexity Management
  • Optimization of resources
  • Circularity

PFI Fareast endeavours to weather the storm with our clients and strives to overcome their challenges in global sourcing through offering visionary sustainable supply chain solutions. In light of the pandemic, PFI is now partnering with DFS, to digitally connect parties in the material supply chain, to support customers in Asia. This unprecedented partnership will provide both digital and sustainable supply chain solutions to offer a competitive edge to the footwear industry.
