17 - 18 September 2008, Barcelona, Spain
With rising fuel prices, transportation capacity issues, new regulatory mandates, changing customer requirements and a greater need for adaptable transportation and distribution networks, companies are looking to achieve greater efficiencies in their global logistics operations.
In doing so, companies seek to collaborate with their core carriers and other trading partners, leverage logistics and transportation optimisation technologies and get proactive visibility across their global network to achieve the maximum levels of customer service and asset utilisation, whilst reducing overall costs. Shorter product lifecycles and new operational demands are also forcing companies to manage inventory throughout the extended global supply chain to optimize performance and meet business objectives.
i2 therefore invites you to attend the i2 European Logistics Thought Leadership Seminar on September 17-18 in Barcelona which will address the new generation of logistics and transportation management solutions and best practices.
Youll also learn what companies such as PepsiCo, Wincanton, Kimberly-Clark and Caprabo have done to improve their logistics processes and transportation network.
If you are an existing i2 transportation customer, there is an opportunity to attend the i2 transportation special interest group session following the event on September 18.
