Can your business REDUCE WASTE through Supply Chain flexibility?

The economic cost of ‘supply chain’ food and drink waste is estimated at around £5 billion.
Leading retailers and their trading partners are now looking at reducing food and drink waste in the supply chain; highlighting how collaborative working can reduce waste. Waste is a by-product of an unhealthy supply chain, whether it be food, product, transport, or cost based. Waste is impossible to eliminate; however solutions are available to minimise it.

All businesses must also balance efficiency with contingency, and in today’s global supply chain we must ask how can we minimise waste and remain flexible.

Speakers from the Supply Chain, Retail, and Sustainability industries will discuss this topic in detail and how they see how supply chain solutions can reduce wastage and if these solutions can also maintain an agile supply chain.

The speakers:

1. Emile Naus, Partner and Technical Director, LCP Consulting
2. David Bateman, Group Managing Director, SH Pratt Group
3. Steve Malkin, Founder of The Planet Mark
4. Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director, DP World London Gateway

This event will showcase the ways in which companies can:

• Minimise waste
• Examine supply chain assets
• Identify best practice process and procedures
• Deliver commercial benefits that are embedded and sustainable
• Minimising empty transport journeys
• Contribute to environmental and commercial sustainability

By the end of the day you will have identified innovative ways to reduce wastage by changing elements within your supply chain.
This unique event will be held at DP World London Gateway, a state of the art deep sea container port and logistics park, where guests will also be able to go on a tour of the premises to view live operations and the latest developments.

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

Exclusive Roundtable Event

When: 12th July 2017, 08:45 (for 09:00) - 11:00
Oracle Corporation, 1 South Place, London, EC2M 2RB

In almost every industry and every supply chain, especially those with highly regulated goods, managing customs and trade compliance on a global scale is a complex task. From product innovation and development, through the procurement or manufacturing and movement of goods, trade compliance is an increasingly competitive differentiator in a modern dynamic supply chain.

Managing the critical exceptions often gets lost in the noise of everyday movements, and when compliance processes fail, both the shipment and the financial workflows can be adversely affected. Not only does the cost of doing business increase, the inability to deliver against promised lead times can hamper revenue growth. Hence, companies cannot afford to be reactive and wait for an incident to occur before analysing their customs and compliance processes. Leading companies explore and implement industry best practices, integrate trade compliance into their supply chain processes and put measures in place to bring visibility and control across their sites and country operations.

At progressive companies, trade compliance teams are always adapting, especially as they look to serve global markets to achieve their growth ambitions. They centralize and enforce compliance policies at a corporate level, standardize on modern automation platforms, and execute locally in each region.

In our exclusive roundtable event, we will:

• Learn how trade compliance has increased in importance and visibility within a modern supply chain
• Look at primary business drivers behind the emergence of modern, multiconnected and accessible trade management automation platforms especially cloud/subscription based models
• Hear how a leading manufacturer streamlined and standardized, their customs and compliance processes, to minimize risks, support growth, and yield a culture of global compliance
• Understand the complex and changing requirements with local government agencies and discuss how BREXIT may increase the focus on global trade management processes
• Round-up of the current global trade management research from leading analysts

Mark Corby, Chairman, Trade Facilitation Import/Export Panel (TFIEEP) will share his perspectives, having been involved in this domain for a long time.
Join us for the breakfast to discuss amongst peers. We look forward to seeing you there.

Breakfast will be provided.
