The 10th European 3PL Summit – co-located with the European Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum – will reveal how you can adapt your business to meet the requirements of the economic re-growth, drive renewed growth and gain market share.

ADAPT YOUR CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIPS TO ECONOMIC VOLATILITY: The European economy is unstable and as a consequence, shippers are continuously re-shaping their supply chain strategy. 3PLs need to follow suit.
Achieve growth by thoroughly understanding your customers’ current limitations and adapting your customer engagement strategy to align with key shipper needs for 2013. Hear and adapt to customers’ perspective on risk management, shifting capacity demands, the drive towards near shoring and new market expansion.

MAXIMIZE GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES WITH KEY INSIGHT FROM YOUR PEERS: Explore the key drivers of change in logistics with unrivalled 3PL-3PL discussions. Gauge the impact of  American 3PL expansion, M&A developments, innovation requirements, intermodal transport, sustainability demands, global network expansion and supply chain complexity upon your current operations.

REFINE YOUR NETWORK STRATEGY FOR MAXIMIZED PROFIT: Ascertain how to maximize your logistics network through in-depth case studies on fresh opportunities in emerging markets; with a special focus on Africa. PLUS, hear from the 3PL CEOs who have followed a different path and rejected global expansion in favour of maximising opportunities at home.

EXCEED CUSTOMER EXPECTATIONS WITH ELITE SHIPPER NETWORKING: Gain unparalleled customer interaction through elite dedicated networking time, feedback sessions and joint customer-3PL panels. PLUS – Learn how top 3PLs are structuring their customer relationship plans to capture new business with 3 customer-3PL case studies.

LEARN THROUGH INTERACTIVE ENGAGEMENT, NOT PASSIVE LISTENING:  With live polls, interactive debates, one2one meetings, break-out discussions, workshops, customer feedback sessions, and much more, the 3PL Summit is deliberately designed for maximum interaction.  Gain and retain the knowledge and connections that will drive your business forward in the coming years.

AND MUCH MORE – With 14 sessions, 2 workshops, 100+ shipper customers, and 350+ total attendees, the opportunities are endless!  Bring your whole team to ensure maximum benefit for your company.
