Can your business REDUCE WASTE through Supply Chain flexibility?

The economic cost of ‘supply chain’ food and drink waste is estimated at around £5 billion.
Leading retailers and their trading partners are now looking at reducing food and drink waste in the supply chain; highlighting how collaborative working can reduce waste. Waste is a by-product of an unhealthy supply chain, whether it be food, product, transport, or cost based. Waste is impossible to eliminate; however solutions are available to minimise it.

All businesses must also balance efficiency with contingency, and in today’s global supply chain we must ask how can we minimise waste and remain flexible.

Speakers from the Supply Chain, Retail, and Sustainability industries will discuss this topic in detail and how they see how supply chain solutions can reduce wastage and if these solutions can also maintain an agile supply chain.

The speakers:

1. Emile Naus, Partner and Technical Director, LCP Consulting
2. David Bateman, Group Managing Director, SH Pratt Group
3. Steve Malkin, Founder of The Planet Mark
4. Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director, DP World London Gateway

This event will showcase the ways in which companies can:

• Minimise waste
• Examine supply chain assets
• Identify best practice process and procedures
• Deliver commercial benefits that are embedded and sustainable
• Minimising empty transport journeys
• Contribute to environmental and commercial sustainability

By the end of the day you will have identified innovative ways to reduce wastage by changing elements within your supply chain.
This unique event will be held at DP World London Gateway, a state of the art deep sea container port and logistics park, where guests will also be able to go on a tour of the premises to view live operations and the latest developments.

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, DP World London Gateway, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.

Speaker: Graham Whiteley

At South Bank Poly in 1973, four friends decided to take a "gap year" driving across Africa!

They rebuilt a Land-Rover and departed Hoverlloyd in mid-1974.

They made it to Kenya, where, having explored the East African Railways they considered their options. A friend and Graham opted to take the ferry to Bombay and thence around India by train, intending to return via Afghanistan. However, travel fatigue set in and they flew home from Delhi in mid-1975.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

Speaker: John Allcock, Chairman, Wrexham-Bidston Rail Users Association

The Borderlands Line provides an important link between North East Wales and the Merseyrail network for connectivity throughout the Liverpool area. The Wrexham-Bidston Rail Users’ Association believes that, with its current service, the “Borderlands Line” significantly underperforms its potential.  A number of key organisations now recognise that this railway corridor could and should provide a more effective link between the communities, work and leisure locations it connects in the cross-border region.

Refreshments will be provided.
