Speaker: Martin Brickell Operations Director Accenture UK, Chair CILT Warehousing Technology Forum

This lecture is part of a series run by the South West Region of CILT in conjunction with Bath University School of Management looking at how digital technologies are transforming the world of logistics.

In this session Martin Brickell, Chair of the CILT Warehousing Technology Forum, will introduce a series of case studies to illustrate how Digital Technology and SMART Logistics are transforming the way warehouses are being managed. Critically, Martin will consider if 3PLs are best placed to drive digital change or will be ‘disrupted’ by the new business models being introduced. The session will be moderated by the Dr Vaggelis Giannikas, Director of the Centre for Smart Warehousing and Logistics Systems at Bath University School of Management.

Martin Brickell on Warehousing Technology:
“During the last few years, the role of the warehouse has radically changed to meet increasing demands of more responsive supply chains. The warehouse has taken on the role of manufacturing as a mass customisation centre and retailing where it supplies direct to the end-user. Customer demand has changed significantly which has impacted all operational areas, inventory carrying costs have been recognised as a key financial measure and the cost of capital employed in a warehouse impacts the bottom line along with speed of service now being a major contributor to a business’s success.”
