Shanghai, China, 2006/12/30 - China's supply chain and logistics leaders to gather for one-day of executive-level education and networking, March 7, 2007 in Shanghai, China.
This annual conference brings together supply chain and logistics leaders and features one day of presentations, panels, roundtables and workshops that address the strategies and tactics necessary for manufacturers and retailers to build successful intra-China domestic logistics and distribution networks.
For many manufacturers and retailers operating in China, reaching inland markets is still more difficult than exporting to the rest of the world. The high cost and the complexity of moving goods within China are still discouraging some manufacturers to move further inland and forcing them to work with multiple service providers.
Because of poor truck quality, overloading practices, already damaged infrastructure, illegal tolling, red tape, different licenses by province and multi-levels subcontracting arrangement, manufacturers or retailers can expect 20% of their Chinese operations costs to be related to the procurement and transportation of materials, personnel and maintenance of logistics facilities.
"For this year conference, we are assembling an elite group of leading practitioners who are managing every day all aspects of intra-China logistics and distribution” said Max Henry, Founder & Executive Director of the China Supply Chain Council, "Attendees will learn about the hottest trends affecting the industry, and receive strategic insight, tools and relationship building opportunities to strengthen the value of their domestic China logistics."
Attendees to this conference will learn the latest practices and trends impacting domestic logistics and transportation, including best-in-class case studies from leading companies across China. Presentations will also help conference-goers understand how to manage logistics service providers, implement technologies and gain insight into the most useful metrics to gauge supply network performance.
Logistics in China will include a compact and efficient exhibition space bringing the latest solutions, services and facilities focused on intra-China logistics and transportation. Participation as a sponsor will put any vendor on a platform where they can increase mind share, influence industry perception with senior-level logistics managers in China. For more information on exhibition and sponsorship opportunities, contact the Council directly.
