Logistics under Pressure
Conservatorium, 151 Oosterdokskade, Amsterdam, NH, 1011 DL, Netherlands
Why is logistics always being squeezed?
There is never a good time to say it - but logistics, distribution and fulfilment are always under so much pressure. Rarely praised, always compared to their more successful cousins, and NO - it’s never about you is it.
Except now. We have decided to devote some time to saying thank you to those in distribution and logistics - welcoming you to our world where those dealing with the pressures of the new retail landscape get to come together and discuss the coming year in a warm, private and convivial atmosphere.
Specifically, the speed of transformation in: customer demand; regulation; competitive behaviour (Yes - including Amazon) and investment needs are now SO rapid that any opportunity to sit down quietly to discuss the challenges among peers must be welcome.
Our dinner in Amsterdam on October 26th is ONLY for logistics professionals, ONLY for 3PL’s, ONLY for leaders in this sector who are under pressure to make changes whilst continuing to deliver (not a joke…)
- Iteration in service delivery, best practice in this sector
- Capex vs opex infrastructure investment
- Speed of change, how to learn to embrace whilst continuing to execute
