Why Operational Excellence and Why Now?

Cost reduction is still the main mantra for everyone in the supply chain, from purchasing, to inbound logistics, to local production activities and final delivery to the customers. We will provide a platform to discuss how to improve and combine the best opportunities coming up from the digital revolution and the possible optimisation strategies coming up from the physical distribution channels. There are many programs and frameworks that can be put in place to make sure that businesses are making the right decisions and understand the return for all efforts undertaken to keep growing.

Points of Discussion

  • Transforming business operations from traditional to cloud operations
  • Creating a stable planning atmosphere in a volatile market
