'A supply chain is only as strong as its weakest link' - and many businesses place emphasis on the optimisation of the physical flow of goods across their supply chain network, but miss integrating global trade aspects to ensure end-to-end efficiency within and across national borders. The event programme includes the impacts of incoterms, how efficient customs management can speed up the supply chain and reduce costs, and how IT solutions support the integration of 'silos', including departments, systems, partners and processes. The conference will also feature case studies from the retail, trade and FMCG sectors, and an expert panel discussion to provide further opportunities for all delegates to take an active part in the event and address questions aimed at 'future-proving' their supply chains and tackling GTM challenges.
Coffee breaks and a complimentary lunch will be provided throughout the course of the day. Attendance is free for CILT members. Non-members will be charged a £20 administration fee.
