Shippers share supply chain best practice at Multimodal seminars

Sixty industry experts will be debating supply chain solutions and best practice for logistics professionals at Multimodal.

Speakers from Sainsbury’s, Boots, and the Co-operative will be amongst the thought leaders taking part in 22 workshops, master classes, and panel debates between the 28th and 30th of April at the Birmingham NEC.
Up to 8000 supply chain decision makers will be visiting over 300 exhibitors at the free-to-attend event, which promises to be the biggest in the show’s eight year history.

'Multimodal is the must-attend event for any one involved in supply chain to find new suppliers, connect with colleagues, and network with logistics professionals,' said Robert Jervis, Multimodal Director.

'This year’s seminars will give visitors in-depth insight into some of the major issues affecting the industry, as well as the tools they need to understand the latest legislation.

'And we are delighted to be welcoming many new exhibitors, including IAG Cargo, DHL, CMA CGM Group, DFDS, and Uniserve.'

Multimodal has teamed up with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) to pull together a programme tackling issues from using Key Performance Indicators as incentivisors, running slick supply chains in Australia, cutting carbon emissions, best practice for the new container weighing legislation, and airfreight efficiencies.
The Shippers' Village will once again give freight buyers, including Tata Steel, Jaguar Land Rover, Sears, and Miller Brands (UK) Ltd, a private space to meet logistics suppliers and the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA) and The Food Storage and Distribution Federation (FSDF) will be hosting their own pavilions.

'We have received some excellent entries for our inaugural Young Logistics Professional of the Year and are looking forward to celebrating with the winner at our VIP dinner,' said Jervis.

The dinner, at the National Motorcycle Museum on the 28th of April, will be hosted by Simon Weston, who will also be handing out awards for Contribution to Multimodal Development, Contribution to Environmental Sustainability, Personality and Exhibitor of the Year, as well as Woman of the Year.
Registration for Multimodal is now open using an on-line system connected to LinkedIn profiles, which enables visitors and exhibitors to organise one-to-one meetings and easily contact suppliers and peers who are attending the event.
