Agenda

The conference will focus on ‘the long view’; how much has changed and how do we develop intermodal supply chains under pressure from all stakeholders?  Guided by thought-leaders, we look at continuing our discussions on three themes:

  • Sustainability in the procurement decisionYou did not act in time‘ says Greta Thunberg. Expert panel including leading truck manufacturer, multinational oil and gas company, global shipper, legislator and expert in IT and data will debate what, when and how much we can improve sustainable mobility – what is coming and where should we invest?  Time is planned for dialogue with the audience.
  • Game changers in the battle to keep the supply chain seamless Following on from Hamburg, we debate game changers including the belt and road initiative, diversity of all types,  IMO 2020, supply chain visibility, geo-politics affecting trade,  future networks and more.  Speakers will be announced.
  • Industry The focus of this session will be announced shortly, however Stephen Cahill Global Logistics Cluster Coordinator at the World Food Programme will be discussing risk and how the private sector can benefit from participating in the most challenging locations.  

Please note – we are still in discussions with members and speakers; changes and updates to the agenda will be made on this page frequently.  Closer to the conference the finalagenda will be available in pdf format.

For those still in Napoli on Saturday 16th November, we have a chance to visit the ruins of the ancient settlement of Ninfa in the Garden of Ninfa, one of Italy's most beautiful parks and described as 'the most romantic garden in the world'. The garden is usually closed at this time of year but we have secured a guide and tour for those interested. We'll travel together from Naples to the garden (2 hours), and after our visit some of the group will depart for Rome (arrival by 15:30) and others for Naples (arrival 17:00). Price depends on group size and will include transport:
