This workshop will provide food and drink producers with the opportunity to have a better understanding of the planning that support improvements within the area of logistics and distribution.

A common failure in several supply chains is directly correlated to a “Factory Gate” mentality. This workshop is designed to show how important post factory gate logistics and supply chain solutions are both in terms of product availability and that all-important consumer data.

Who should attend this session?

Any food or drink producer who wishes to understand the key elements of logistics and distribution.

  • Understanding logistics within your organisation
