Over the years, supply chain management has become hugely important in almost any business. As nations across the globe continue to recover from the global financial crisis and consumer spending begins to increase, more pressure is being placed on logistics professionals to deliver goods quickly and cost effectively.
Global businesses, across a variety of sectors, have had to make major changes to the supply chain practices over the last 18 months. Cargo owners and their service providers have had to minimise inefficiencies and drive new value through the logistics chain in order to remain profitable. Additionally, businesses are under increased pressure to improve their environmental performance and ensure the long-term sustainability of the global trade system.
It goes without saying that the global supply chain is coming under increased pressure and it is essential that businesses seek to improve their operations over the coming year. The new TOC Container Supply Chain, which runs alongside the annual TOC Europe event, will provide a platform for cargo owners and container shippers to share views on how to improve supply chain performance with their suppliers of logistics, shipping, port and transport services.
Container supply chain stakeholders will be able to hear from a number of high profile shippers and supply chain professionals including speakers from Asda, Tesco, Kingfisher / B&Q, Drewer Supply Chain, PD Ports, Port of Antwerp and more.
