CILT - Supply Chain Network

Supply Chain Network

The Supply Chain Network was established as part of CILT's London Region activities in September 2004. It is a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. After over 100 events, as at late 2018 it's in a period of transition, but it looks as if we'll be having meetings in the Baker St area again in the fairly near future.

In the meantime, here's a London based event that you might want to come along to: How can supply chains benefit from AI? This is a CILT WiL event, so before you ask, there is definitely no restriction on menfolk – about 1 in 6 of Women in Logistics members are men, and we had a good showing of men at the joint SCN/WiL event that we did. Central London, Wednesday 21 November, 18:00 - 20:30, Open to members and non-members of CILT – CILT members FREE, £10 for non-members. Find out more and book via this link - if you’re not a CILT member, you can create a profile and book.

If you want to receive future mailings, don't hesitate to get in touch with Kirsten Tisdale, who set up the group - just put 'Supply Chain Network' in the comments box on the contact form that this link takes you to, as well as completing your contact details.
