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.
