NAVIGATING THE SUPPLY CHAINWRECK & OPTIMISING THE MOVEMENT OF GOODS
When it comes to the current state of the global supply chain, weakness is everywhere. Massive dislocations are present in the container market, shipping routes, ports, air cargo, trucking lines, railways and warehouses. For goods to move seamlessly from overseas factories to Australian addresses, the oceangoing vessels, shipping containers, cargo terminals, truckers and railroads all must work together, like runners in a relay race. If equipment gets stuck at any point, delays ripple along the entire chain.
The Supply Chain and Industrial Warehouse Summit will look at how the pandemic has disrupted global supply chains and accelerated ecommerce sales growth so quickly that immense pressure has been placed on distribution networks and warehouse capacity.
It will explore the major challenges being faced by CPGs and 3PLs facing across the supply chain from shipping, containers, transportation, warehousing and the last mile – and how technology and innovative approaches can help unlock inefficiencies and optimise the movement of goods.
It will also look at the huge opportunities this has created for industrial & logistics property owners and investors as consumer goods and logistics companies scramble to increase their inventories and expand their warehouse space.
