Sessions on carbon reduction, financing the supply chain, declaration of container weights, portcentric solutions, controlling freight rates, Customs compliance, leveraging contracts with ocean carriers, modal shift, and the logistical challenge of multichannel retail, are all still bookable on-line at www.multimodal.org.uk

“Freight buyers face daily tough decisions in a difficult financial landscape, with the added pressures of new legislation, compliance issues, and shifting modal trends,” said seminar producer Emma Murray.

“We are delighted that so many industry leaders will be joining the sessions to share their expertise and help decision makers tackle today’s supply chain challenges.”

Trade Extensions will also be holding supply chain simulations using the MIT “Beer Game”. During the informal sessions, participants will both learn, and be reminded in some cases, of just how difficult supply chains can be, even when they are as “simple” as getting beer to the consumer.

They join leading logistics and supply chain names, including DSV, Autostore, Dachser, Malcolm Logistics, P&O Ferrymasters, DP World London Gateway, DB Schenker, Wincanton, BoxTop Technologies, Freightliner, UFS Freight Services, Stena Line, and del Montracon.
