Speaker: Barrie Louw

During the previous 5 years the Logistics Institute at the University of Hull has worked on several projects relating to the coordination and optimisation of international and national multimodal freight routes and logistics. In the world of supply chain disruption and increasing pressure to deliver on decarbonisation targets, the traditional approaches to freight movement need to be constantly re-evaluated and adapted. What are the insights that can be gained from the projects and research conducted by the Institute? Rail freight is one of the keys to a carbon neutral future for supply chains. We will have a look at some of the opportunities and challenges that this industry face and the work done by the Institute to provide the data to measure the positive impact that rail freight presents.
Barrie Louw heads the Logistics Institute. Barrie has more than 25 years’ experience working in supply chains. He implemented integrated business systems, led improvement projects and managed multi-national supply chains, before joining the Logistics Institute 2017. He has worked in many industries including agriculture, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and he led supply planning for Heineken and Diageo in the Southern African market during a transformational period. He managed the developed of several innovative logistics software solutions and concepts at the Institute.
