Now in its 15th year, the 3PL & Supply Chain Summit is considered a must-attend event as leading professionals in the industry come together to share insights into the ever-changing supply chain space. The event is recognised as having the best speakers, an agenda that showcases the most important business challenges and possesses the most senior and influential attendee list of any industry meeting.

Retailers: The event allows the opportunity to meet with partners, logistics providers and technology evangelists to keep up with the pace of customer’s behaviours and allow real-time decisions to be made in order to balance profit margins.

Manufacturers and CPGs: The opportunity to meet with retailors and partners to understand how to support them in transportation and inventory optimisation to jointly pursue key supply chain requirements.

Logistics providers: The event enables the chance to learn from fellow industry professionals, partners and customers in order to enhance network design, innovate with sustainable transportation models to track and trace capabilities to differentiate from the competition.

Technology providers: It’s important for businesses to get in front of future customers in order to understand and determine how best to find the most appropriate solution.
