Chemical Supply Chain & Global Logistics Conference

LogiChem 2011 will be the event’s tenth anniversary and an opportunity for the most senior chemical supply chain & global logistics directors from the European chemicals community to come together once again share experiences make new contacts and benchmark the latest chemical supply chain initiatives.

Not only will LogiChem 2011 be a chance for the chemical industry to reminisce about the last ten years but an opportunity to shape the next decade. To celebrate a decade of LogiChem, there will be an exciting three day programme filled with networking opportunities in our new location, Antwerp.

A recent report revealed that 2011 will present a new set of challenges for chemical supply chain directors. As the chemical industry still reels from the aftermath of the cyclical downturn and global recession, companies are faced with strengthened competition from the Middle East, concerns about a European capacity crisis, ongoing M&A activity and prevailing cost volatilities.

A common theme unearthed in LogiChem’s research has been that whilst generally confidence has risen, chemical companies are increasingly focused on improving working capital, achieving end-to-end efficiency through closer customer positioning and driving cost out of the supply chain. Most importantly, the supply chain directors of the world’s biggest chemical companies are turning to experienced solution providers to help them achieve their objectives.

The 2011 speaker faculty features a first-class line-up of the most forward thinking chemical companies. With a brand new agenda format, you can create a personalised programme around your top chemical supply chain and global logistics priorities.

In addition, a key trend emerging for 2011 is the need for chemical companies to develop more efficient network design to improve transportation flows, achieve better load capacity management, enhance routing and lower end-to-end costs. To that effect, we’ve made that the subject of the LogiChem focus day.
