Women In Logistics Video Part 2; Reverse Logistics Opportunities; Social Media and Supply Chains

This week, eft is happy to bring you part 2 of its ‘Women in Logistics – Lean In Moment’ video, which ensues the extremely popular 1st instalment from a few weeks back. This time we hear from Susan Kichuk, Board Member & SVP Corporate Development, DB Schenker, and Kelli Saunders, President, Morai Logistics as they divulge their ‘Lean In’ career moments

There are also new articles from two of our regular columnists – Vivek Sood, and Mark Millar. Vivek Sood uses the adversity IKEA faced as an example to explain how having strong business networks can defend against boycotts and Mark Millar investigates reverse logistics, describing how a notoriously ‘complex and disjointed’ operation could ‘present big opportunities for value creation’. Mark Millar is also associated with the new interesting event – The UK Pavilion Initiative, led by himself and supported by CILF, it provides UK companies the chance to try and develop business opportunities in China and is definitely worth a look at. 

Finally, if you didn’t get the chance last week, you can still sign up for the collaborative webinar from eft and Hexaware here.

Kind Regards,

Chris Saynor  
CEO, eft
