17 Apr 20
This week: Bryan Yates, general manager and director of sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Orbital Insight, talks about how analysis of geospatial data can help companies track their supply chains and gauge risks. In particular he discusses the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on food supply chains, and how data can give insight into how social distancing is being practiced in different cities. Yates highlights why new pinch points in supply chains and social activity more generally have developed and the challenges they present.
Plus: farm animal welfare concerns, child labour in cocoa supply chains, and new plastic eating enzymes, in the news roundup.
