Corporate Round Table Events

CILT Round Table events provide a unique opportunity to hear the topic-specific views of industry’s thought-leaders regarding contemporary supply-chain and logistics issues.

Round Tables provide a platform for industry thought-leaders and innovators to present their opinion and views concerning contemporary supply-chain and logistics issues and associated solutions for the benefit of CILT members and others. 

Round Table events are usually free-of-charge to attend and typically provide the delegate audience with an opportunity to interrogate the events speakers further. Opportunities to share views and experiences, discuss best-practise, network and possibly collaborate with other interested parties are common.   

For further information about marketing, advertising, administration and the costs associated with hosting a Round Table, please call  Tracey Young on 01536 740 136

We are all only too aware of the increasingly acute skills gap in the logistics industry.  Against a backdrop of ever-changing consumer expectations, a rising population, fluctuating client demands and emerging Brexit negotiations, the degree and impact of this skills gap is constantly shifting.

In order to better understand the latest situation, and provide an up-to-date barometer of the extent of this issue, Kronos would like to invite you to take part in an industry-wide survey, followed by an interactive round table discussion on April 24th 2018.

The survey results will provide a view on how the skills gap is affecting logistics and distribution organisations right now, and will be revealed and discussed during the round table session.  

By attending the event you will be able to:

Benchmark yourself in this area against others in the industry
Network with your peers to share ideas and insights
Discuss how you can help to future-proof your company by offsetting the impact of the skills gap.  

You will leave the event with practical examples to take back to your organisation- whether it’s new ideas for training and recruitment, the application of automation technology, artificial intelligence, or improved scheduling strategies, our aim is to arm you with practical ideas for helping you to overcome this critical industry problem.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you there. 


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

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."
