dc.description.abstract From Introduction to Special Issue, by Professor Tava Olsen: As an export-focused country, New Zealand (NZ) lives and dies by its supply chains. We trust you will find the articles here both thought provoking and inspiring. We are on the brink of a new Industrial Revolution, yet some of NZ’s supply chains seem stuck in the 20th century. The articles in this issue explore supply chain and managerial innovations and what they mean for NZ’s supply chains. Mechanization, electrification, and computing each drove dramatic and disruptive progress in the production of goods and services. Industry 4.0, a term first coined by the German economic development agency GTAI, is so-named to promote the idea that we are at the dawn of a new industrial revolution brought about by the connection of the physical and digital realms. In the first article, we explore issues around supply chain strategy, and whether the collective hand-wringing around NZ’s log (and similar commodities) exports is justified. The second article, by Dr O’Grady, explores ideas of adaptive management and how they are successfully applied at Mainfreight. Then Drs Zhong and Zhang describe the Internet of Things and what it means for NZ agrifood businesses; they argue that it is reaching a tipping point for NZ. Finally, Professor Robb calls for New Zealand firms and educators to enhance their capabilities in supply chain management to meet a growing demand and critical skills for supply chain talent. He encourages exemplary practice from thought leaders in New Zealand and recent research. The University of Auckland Business School’s vision is to shape the futures of people and organisations for the benefit of Aotearoa New Zealand and the world. One important part of shaping NZ’s future is helping improve NZ’s supply chains and so move the dial on the performance of NZ Inc. We hope that the ideas in this issue will both challenge your thinking and improve your supply chain knowledge. en
