old-event1 Advanced Forum on Supply Chain Security
Date: Monday, January 30 to Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Location: Le Méridien Hotel, Brussels
Organiser: C5

With organised crime on the rise and terrorist activities a constant threat, having a secure and impenetrable supply chain is essential to a company’s continued success. The cost of goods lost during transportation is estimated at € billions per year, with manufacturers suffering losses amounting to approximately five times the value of those goods damaged or stolen.

Organised crime is becoming increasingly inventive with criminals continuously developing new techniques to gain access to goods in transit, leaving freight across all industries vulnerable to attacks. To avoid being a target for theft, it is essential that companies keep up-to-date on the latest trends on freight security risks and know the latest strategies for protecting goods while they are in transit, be it by truck, sea, air or rail freight.

The need for tighter security while goods are in transit has been demonstrated by countries across the globe adopting programmes such as the Authorised Economic Operate (AEO) and providing benefits to companies that can demonstrate that they have taken the necessary measures to prevent their goods getting into the wrong hands.

In order to help you maintain and safe and secure supply chain, C5 has developed The Advanced Forum on Supply Chain Security. This event is designed as an in-depth, practical course on how to overcome the everyday challenges of keeping your supply chain secure, including assessing risks to your supply chain, identifying and avoiding known dangerous routes and working with freight forwarders to ensure that your goods are safe once they are outside of your physical control.

Key Topics Include:
•Best practices for assessing and mitigating risks along the supply chain
•Strategies for avoiding hijackings while your goods are transported via truck
•How to make the most of your resources by aligning audit procedures for AEO, C-TPAT, Know-Consigner and Simplified Customs Procedure certifications
•Best practices for updating and maintaining your supply chain security compliance programme in order to minimise risks throughout your supply chain
•Choosing the best inland ports for your freight to be dock in: key factors to consider
•How to overcome the challenges of moving goods across borders: assessing where the greatest risks are and how to avoid them
•Strategies for ensuring on-site security throughout the year
