The augmentation in the use of automated fleets to reduce production costs is one of the key reason driving the global iron ore market. This resulted in the increased implementation of automated fleets in the mining of iron ore by suppliers.
“Purchasing managers must collaborate with suppliers that have adopted automation in mining processes, as it minimizes the risk of supply disruptions due to human error,” says Angad Singh, a metal and mining procurement research specialist at SpendEdge.
The prices of iron ore are highly dynamic in nature due to prevailing market conditions. The demand from the steel industry is one of the prominent factors affecting the prices of iron ore. This creates difficulty for purchasing managers to calculate prominent budgets, as it is difficult to forecast accurate prices of iron ore over the entire duration of the contract.
