CSCMP Benelux Roundtable is organising a ‘Sustainable Supply Chains‘ conference at NHTV on 11 October 2017.

The conference will be opened with a general introduction about sustainability in supply chain management and logistics, from a theoretical but also practical view, by Professor Jan Willem Proper and Christian Plesca.

The conference will continue with sustainability challenges faced in the modern supply chains by Mark Banning. He works for TMC and will explain how to improve integration between partners in the chain. Then Sergio Castro, working for Emerson, will reveal how to reduce risk by using Big Data. 

The conference will end with a presentation by Edwin Kalischnig, CEO of X-treme Technologies. He will describe how to reduce waste and what the implications are on each company’s business model.

Certainly the knowledge and insight gained can be discussed during the networking session, where sandwiches and drinks are provided.
