is hosting the Supply Chain Week in Melbourne and Sydney from 10 to 14 September 2012.
Registrations for Supply Chain Week 2012 are now open, with businesses across the country invited to sign up for the free events in Melbourne and Sydney.
The not-for-profit supply chain standards organisation, GS1 Australia is organising the annual Supply Chain Week as a platform for supply chain professionals and business owners to explore how global standards can help businesses drive efficiencies and reduce costs in the face of today’s challenges.
GS1 Australia’s General Manager – Industry Engagement, Richard Jones explains that the Supply Chain Week provides an interactive platform for businesses to learn about supply chain standards, what they mean for their business now and in the future, and how best to implement them. He adds that the event will be useful for all businesses, regardless of where they are in the supply chain or the size of their organisation.
According to Mr Jones, Supply Chain Week 2012 will build on the success of last year’s event by featuring more case studies, expert sessions, high profile speakers and learning opportunities than ever before. He adds that the week is designed to benefit both professionals who are already using GS1 standards in their business and those who are yet to get started.
Supply Chain Week 2012 will feature free workshops and seminars covering the key areas of grocery and liquor, general merchandise, agribusiness, hardware, healthcare, and transport and logistics, with every session designed to provide companies with a chance to learn about how other companies are best using supply chain standards in their businesses, hear the latest industry-specific news and developments on GS1 standards, and discuss their business needs with experts.
Delegates will gain a comprehensive understanding of the technologies and services at their disposal to achieve supply chain excellence, and can discuss their real-life implementation with GS1 experts and solution providers. A key goal of the Supply Chain Week is for every delegate to leave the event with a deeper understanding of how GS1 standards can improve their supply chain as well as the process of implementation of the GS1 system.
