Event Details

When you hear about innovation in the supply chain, you typically get the over-hyped news about logistics robots, self-driving trucks or flying drones that will soon be delivering our e-commerce packages.

In Asia, supply chain leaders have however a much more pragmatic view on innovation. They care more about they can improve the efficiency of their supply chain or logistics operations and ultimately optimize their flows, costs and service level to their customers.

At this event, you will be able to join other forward thinking companies as they share best practices and lessons learned from driving innovations in their operations and as they embrace the disruption in their supply chains to drive increased customer satisfaction and operational efficiency in Hong Kong, Greater China and al around Asia.

Pieter Paul Wittgen
CEO & Co-Founder 

Žiga Drev
Co-founder & COO

Dr. Shelley Zhou
