It will take place on June 14th.

The brands giving speeches at the event will focus on supply chain case studies, offering methods of best practice and ways in which the industry can be bettered. The speakers will also give advice on their own methods of: driving flexibility and scalability into a network strategy, the building of strategic partnerships across the supply chain and finally how to maximise a business cost-to-service.
