Laurence Allen, Marketing Director for the event commented: “The key question supply chain and logistics directors have to ask themselves is I am executing enough effective measures to remain competitive in the current global environment? The program has been specifically designed to help provide answers and cushion the impact being felt on everyone’s supply chains. I certainly expect a thought provoking and rewarding three days for this community and hope the summit will help them move forward with confidence.”
