Registration is now open for this year’s eyefortransport 3PL Summit – where 500 industry leaders come together to share their views on Logistics and Supply Chain opportunities for 2012.
Now in its 10th year, the 3PL Summit has a well-earned reputation for bringing together the industry’s top thought leaders for expert-led discussions of key topics, dedicated networking, the annual 3PL Awards, and, new for this year, a charity fundraising silent auction.
Speakers at this year’s event will include top-level executives such as Dan Spellman, President of Americas and Asia at Caterpillar Logistics Services; Fred Schardt, President and CEO at FedEx Trade Networks; Ed Feitzinger, President of Global Contract Logistics and Distribution at UTi; Sid Brown CEO of NFI Industries; Tom Sanderson, President & CEO of Transplace; Jeremy Haycock, President of North America for Damco, and many more besides.
Co-located with the 3PL Summit is the Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum. Running parallel to the 3PL Summit, this event offers attendees the chance to gain insight into the ways that supply chain practitioners are evolving their supply chains to meet the demands of 2012. Speakers on this track include supply chain executives such as Starbucks’ Greg Javor, SVP of Global Logistics; Walgreens’ Randy Lewis, SVP Supply Chain; Nancy Morino, CSCO of Gloria Jean’s Coffee; and Kevin Wrenn, SVP Operations at Fujitsu, to name just a few.
This year’s speaker faculty highlights the event’s ability to draw in the very best in the industry. The agenda focuses on those issues that are topmost in the minds of 3PL and supply chain executives: how to maximize opportunities in a new economy, how to approach new markets and tap into new profit, how to leverage strategic carrier relationships to meet rising capacity demands. These issues, among others, will be brought out into the spotlight in group discussions focused on real-world solutions. Bringing 3PL industry leaders together with supply chain executives provides an exclusive insight into customer expectations – an incredibly valuable tool in preparing to draw in new customers.
This unique event gives 3PL providers and their customers the opportunity to learn from industry leaders on vital topics. The Summit is designed for maximum interaction with interactive debates, networking sessions, one2one meetings, break-out discussions, workshops and much, much more.
