Supply Chain Innovation Will Be the Focus of April's CSCMP Europe Conference

January 25, 2012

The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) will hold its eighth European conference, April 23-25, 2012, in Frankfurt, Germany at the Hilton Frankfurt Airport. Focusing on supply chain management innovation and best practices, the event will offer educational sessions and networking opportunities to global supply chain executives.

"Effective supply chain management requires innovative thinking, and practical applications and execution," said Georg Odenthal, conference co-chair and supply chain management consultant. "Attendees will hear new ideas and creative ways of improving supply chain processes, as well as examples from supply chain management professionals from top European and other global corporations of how they implemented innovations that benefited the bottom line."

Peter D. Gibbons, Starbucks Coffee Company executive vice president, global supply chain operations, will keynote CSCMP Europe 2012. John Lund, senior vice president, supply chain management, at Disney Destinations, LLC will serve as the closing general session speaker.

Conference sessions include presentations from executives at leading companies such as CEVA Logistics, Fluke Europe BV, McKinsey & Co., Penske Logistics Europe, Procter & Gamble, and Vale, among others. Performance measurement, talent acquisition and management, collaboration, risk management, and customer-centric strategies are just some of the topics that will be covered.

Interactive discussion forums are a part of the conference's agenda, providing attendees with the opportunity to share experiences and insights, ask questions, and learn from colleagues. Sessions will focus on collaboration, global trade, local versus global, and supply chain management strategies.

CSCMP will hold its annual European Research Seminar on April 23 before the conference officially begins where members of the academic and research communities will present current research.

Penske Logistics and Progress Software are gold sponsors of the conference; Amber Road is a silver sponsor. Companies interested in becoming sponsors should contact Chuck M. Martinez at (305) 661-2896 or Chuck@AdelfiGroup.com.

Calculating a true landed cost for global sourcing directly correlates with the profitability of purchased goods. However, few companies can command real-time visibility in to all the costs involved for cross border movements. In this podcast, World Trade 100 and Amber Road highlight how a comprehensive global trade platform that converges both logistics and compliance costs can deliver true landed cost visibility.
