Sudden global disturbances, whether political or social, continue to demonstrate how easily economic sustainability and procurement channels can be disturbed. Their negative impact on supply chains and the global economy have been so significant that governments are implementing initiatives in an effort to reverse the trend. Globally, commercial and passenger transportation such as truck, bus and rail have also fallen victim to this trend and are in the midst of a deep slump due to reduced demand, labour shortages and supply chain delays.

Many manufacturers have begun to implement customised product configurations in an effort to maintain a competitive advantage, however, their ability to deliver these products has been deeply affected. Manufacturers and industry leaders are acknowledging the need to implement more agile product innovation and flexible manufacturing processes to maintain sustainability strategies and ensure business growth.
