Supply chains have become increasingly complex and need to be both flexible enough to adapt to fluctuations and react to disruptions, and stable enough to increase quality and customer satisfaction levels. Striking the right balance is a tremendous challenge, particularly while also minimising risks and reducing costs.
How should supply chain managers face the challenge and take the leap from simply reacting to customer demand and struggling to fulfil delivery promises (surviving), to pro-actively managing a transparent and integrated supply chain network that keeps a competitive edge while ensuring global customs compliance (thriving)?
Supply chain efficiency improvements can start in a variety of areas and priorities depend on who you are talking to, e.g. shipping, warehouse or compliance managers. Each area has its own perspective and individual needs, but it all comes down to this: End-to-end supply chain excellence can only be achieved when all areas and all business partners, internal and external, work smoothly together in an integrated and transparent supply chain network.
This conference hosted by AEB in partnership with CILT(UK) takes a scrutinising look at the various segments of todayâ€™s supply chains to identify main cost drivers and risks, explore potential areas of improvement and introduce best-practice examples from key industry players.
