At Kimberly-Clark, we know digital transformation is pivotal to our ability to better serve consumers. As a result of our innovative supply chain initiatives, we were recently awarded the prestigious NextGen Supply Chain Visionary Award, which is given to one company each year that has made great strides in its supply chain and is setting the bar for the future. Scott DeGroot, vice president of global distribution and planning, accepted the award virtually during last month’s conference.

In an acceptance interview with Bob Trebilcock, executive editor of Modern Materials Handling, Scott discussed the digitization and innovation of Kimberly-Clark’s supply chain and the company’s commitment to delivering exceptional value while fulfilling consumer needs.
