Pre-Conference Workshop Day

Monday, January 27th, 2020


11:30 AM Workshop B: Peering through the looking glass – what will the future of global logistics look like and how will we get there?

IoT, Blockchain, Advanced Analytics, digital transformation, process 4.0 – buzzwords or supply chain blockbusters?
In the race for lean, global and end to end logistics networks the latest industry adoption craze continues to centre
around digitalisation of the supply chain but this interactive workshop will look at where the global pharma logistics
industry is – and where these buzz words can actually be operationalised when you get back to the office!

Attend this workshop to:
  • Discuss the operationalisation of future technologies within the current logistics and supply chain paradigm – where are we now and what is holding us back?
  • Brainstorm how to predict disparate variables in your logistics and SC planning – and how to leverage these findings to mitigate weakness in global supply
  • Discover what practical processes you can put in place now to ensure your supply chain is future-proof
