“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.
