About the Forum

The e-commerce revolution has created unprecedented challenges for companies to overcome in the digital age. Businesses are expected to deliver much greater performance with reduced resources, supply more channels with the same inventory level, and deliver exquisite customer experiences at the same time – and to do so faster, cheaper and with products that engage end users.

To fulfill the growing needs of the global marketplace, companies in turn demand more from Logistic Management and Operational Strategy professionals, requiring the skills and capability to integrate the advanced technology and analytics capabilities of the Industry 4.0 into key processes of traditional Warehousing and Supply Chain Operations.
