Ripping Up The Rule Book

Thursday, 1 Aug 2019 ( #934 )
SCL Summit
Across the globe, the rule book is being torn up for supply chain and logistics planning, operations and the professionals tasked with marshalling the services, assets and people to deliver the goods. Automation and digitalisation are disrupting traditional business models, consumer expectations, supply chain, logistics and transport networks at an unprecedented pace and scale - and the speed of technology development will never be as slow as it is today.

The 21st edition of the Supply Chain & Logistics Summit will be addressing the disruptions taking place in the industry and will be held at the Hilton Antwerp in Belgium from 24-26 September. The Summit is a high-level event for Supply Chain professionals to meet, exchange ideas and contribute to the debate. The sessions are designed to provide delegates with real-life scenarios of achievements, challenges and how the implementation of technology can achieve competitive advantage.

A host of C-level executives will be sharing their insights into the opportunities and challenges of top-level management, including: Shachar Tal - Co-founder, Loginno; Ollivier Pascal - President, Maritime Street; Stefan Schrauf - Partner, Europe, Strategy, PWC; Erwin Verstraelen - Chief Digital Officer, Port of Antwerp; Wolfgang Lehmacher - Global Supply Chain Strategist, Former Head of Supply Chain & Transport, World Economic Forum; Carolina Cipres - Director of Research, ZLC and Chair, CNC-Logistica, plus many more.  

The Summit format will consist of a series of plenary sessions, case studies, roundtable discussions and networking opportunities. Delegates will be encouraged to contribute and share their experiences, as well as, takeaway and use the valuable contributions from other attendees and high-level speakers at the event.

Topics that will be covered will include: Rebuilding global enterprise and supply chain networks for constant change; Cracking the forecasting conundrum; Securing the organisation logistics and transportation pipeline - sea, land and air; Enabling change leadership within organisations and across supply networks; AI and predictive analytics and warehouse management; How to enhance revenue by improving order fulfilment, delivery speed and customer satisfaction; Getting serious about sustainability & ethics and much more.
