“How do we ensure that our customers go about handling their supply chain businesses in the right way?” asks Ahmed Samnan Raza, CTO at PartnerLinQ
This interview was conducted at Reuters Events: Supply Chain USA (May 17-18, Chicago, 2023).
While globalisation helped supply chains expand their footprint across different markets — be it for sourcing or demand — the political and economic repercussions from a volatile world have complicated operations by several orders of magnitude. This has resulted in companies facing unprecedented challenges, including supply chain disruptions, fluctuating trade policies, currency exchange rate fluctuations, and geopolitical tensions.

“Something we’ve been focusing on at PartnerLinQ is how do we ensure that our customers go about handling their supply chain businesses in the right way — the orders, their shipments, their invoices, and all the transactions in between?” said Ahmed Samnan Raza, CTO at PartnerLinQ.
