4IR The Hype and the RealityBOOK NOW
24/01/2018 09:15:00 - 24/01/2018 11:30:00

When: 24 January 2018, 09:00 (for 09:15) - 11:30
Where: Oracle Corporation, 1 South Place, London, EC2M 2RB  

Fourth Industrial revolution (4IR) and the impact on the supply chain, logistics, construction, services, transportation and travel.

Please join us and your peers to discuss what may be the most significant business transformation to face any of us in our working life. Let us come together to challenge 4IR, discuss the reality, the opportunities and risks, along with the impact on the wider supply chain, operations, asset utilisation and management, and specifically focusing on supply chain, logistics, construction, services, transportation and travel organisations. There is plenty of hype, let us talk about the reality?

The Hype:-
“The Fourth industrial revolution could leave UK behind” The Independent

“If we get this approach right then the UK can expect to be at the forefront of this global industrial wave. Get it wrong, however, and the UK will be left trailing in its wake.” Chief economist Lee Hopley

The Reality:
- The prizes in terms of bottom and top line appear massive, are they achievable?
- Customer experience is seen as the main driver of 4IR, what does this mean?
- Is it only for manufacturers or how will it impact the whole supple chain?
- If the dream is to push almost limitless choice towards the customer how will logistics, transportation and travel providers improve efficiency and asset utilisation whilst delivering such a limitless service?
- Is it just some new tech with Internet of Things, Cloud, Adaptive Intelligence, Robotics or a complete business and market transformation?

Please join us and your peers on the 24th January at our exclusive roundtable to discuss the potential impact, opportunity and risk of 4IR on the Supply Chain and to see some of the technology at work.

 

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, Oracle, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.

Humanitarian Logistics - Providing Practical Support for Global EmergenciesBOOK NOW

When: 07 February 2018, 19:00 - onwards
Where: University of Kent Business School, Parkwood Road, Canterbury, CT2 7PE

Speaker: George Fenton MILT, Chairman, Humanitarian Logistics Association (HLA)

Presentation on Logistics as the backbone of humanitarian operations – the effectiveness of emergency response is directly proportional to the preparedness of humanitarian logistics teams. ‘Last mile’ aid deliveries must be flexible as it’s difficult to predict when or where disasters will strike. Business people are among the first to respond; they act directly in humanitarian contexts or indirectly through supply chains. They can work independently, directly with people in crisis or by collaborating with humanitarian organisations. What does the future hold?

George Fenton will give a lecture on the developing role for Humanitarian Logistics in supporting Crisis and Aid Management across the Globe.

The Internet of Supply Chains - DigitalisationBOOK NOW

Digitalisation and Collaboration is more prevalent, especially in Supply Chain Management, than anywhere else. With globalisation, mergers and aquisitions, 4PL contracts, outsourced suppliers, understandably the strain on communications and IT is immense. This event is aimed at supply chain-logistic managers, directors and interested parties who have great systems, but still work with spreadsheets, phone calls and emails as cross border transactions become more complex. Also of course, interested parties who want to understand how Digitalisation and Collaboration has impacted supply chains. Register now if you wish to attend and hear first hand from various experts who have embraced and delivered differing solutions and practices in the digital world. See the review from last years event.

"This is one of the best one day conferences I have filmed at in a long while. Speakers were excellent. Q/A was so healthy and focussed that it caused the event to overrun. If you missed it then don't make the same mistake when they run the next one."

Speaker: Tanja Dalle- Muenchmeyer, European programme Manager, FREVUE

Urban air quality is of increasing concern in London as well as most other cities in the UK. While policy measures have long focused on busses and passenger cars, freight vehicles are now moving up the political agenda and an array of new measures are being introduced to reduce the impact of vans and trucks on London's air quality. Based on the Freight Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe ( FREVUE) projects, Tanja will present findings on electric freight vehicles, their economics, technical and operational suitability as well as environmental benefits based on these results and new initiatives, can we say that the electrification of freight vehicles is the way forward?

They work with you, not for you. And they only work with the best. Because they only want the best”.
