An event organised exclusively for organisations working within the Northern regions’ supply chain, The LJMU Chemical Supply Chain Forum is an interactive event where your participation can a really impact the future of your supply chain as well as positively influence your business’ future.
With the aim of driving forward the development of solutions facing the chemical supply industry today, the event has been formed in association with C₃ to create a collaboration of likeminded commercial organisations and academia. Consider this: How will “smart contracts” and the “internet of things (IoT)” impact our daily business or help us in terms of quality control and liability relating to goods in transit or reducing carbon emissions?
Individual companies alone within the supply chain may lack the resources or required mass to successfully combat the dilemmas themselves so the goals of this engaging forum are to provide the interactive arena needed for these businesses to together take united action and jointly shape the future of the industry. Influential industry leaders will be in attendance and involved in the Q&A part of the event, facilitating the opportunity for delegates to interact directly and network after the formal proceedings.
As it stands our speaker line-up will include:
- Prof Ahmed Al-Shamma’a, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, LJMU
- Prof Andy Ross, Subject Head: Surveying & Lead on Degree Apprenticeships, LJMU
- Dr Trung Thanh Nguyen Reader in Operational Research, LJMU
Topics and innovative solutions dicussed by our insightful speakers include: Degree Apprenticeships, Sensor Technology in the supply chain and reducing your Carbon Footprint – developing and controlling a new type of automated vehicle and how optimisation with freight can enhance the environment. The whole event will revolve around the subject of collaboration – what holds people back when it comes to collaborating? How can collaborating take businesses to a greater good? There are many government changes and advances in technology that can greatly change the way we operate, this event is pioneering those changes and is calling on businesses to make their mark and contribute to the future of the supply chain.
Who Should Attend?
Manufacturers, importers, exporters and logistics service providers are the types of companies who would benefit most from coming along to the LJMU Chemical Supply Chain Forum.
