The Allport Cargo Services Global Supply Chain Seminar in association with Retail Week, took place last week at the iconic and inspiring Shard in London. Senior supply chain executives from leading retailers including Asda, Debenhams, Pets at Home, Boots, Karen Millen, attended the executive briefing, which had a particular focus on the potential and challenges to growth in South East Asia and the implications and benefits of a great returns logistics strategy on customer experience.
Clyde Buntrock, VP Group Sales and Marketing, Allport Cargo Services welcomed delegates commenting that “This is the third time that Allport Cargo Services has invited innovative global supply chain managers – to explore real issues they are facing today. All our speakers are leaders in their field and provided real insight and practical advice for delegates.”
Allport Cargo Services have eight strategic investments in South East Asia and the company is developing sophisticated solutions in what is still an emerging market. Clyde explained: “We continually review our network to assess areas for process improvement. The South East Asia opportunity is certainly an exciting one for both Allport Cargo Services and our retail clients.”
Retail Weeks’, Charlotte Hardie, Head of Commercial Projects, chaired the event.
The speakers were all leaders in their field:
This was a fantastic and unique opportunity to learn from the experts, as well as discuss the key issues with peers. Global retailers are operating in a continually disrupted and evolving environment and these events allow us to keep one step ahead
The presentations were followed by an evening of networking over drinks and pan-asian food.
