Today, global companies are conducting business through leveraging new capabilities enabled by digital means – this manifests in the supply chain via multiple order points, multiple distribution points, last-mile delivery and same-day delivery expectations.  This has led to the evolution of the Omni-Channel that supply chains must serve and manage.  The structure of global supply chains – global sources of materials, global customer destinations, many cross-border conveyances as a result – has increased the number of SKUs, the number of parties involved, compliance requirements and has resulte...

Port capacity and especially free port capacity can play a crucial role in the competition struggle between ports. Instead of increasing port charges when trying to solve congestion problems,  some port authorities decided to enlarge and renovate existing  port infrastructure and/or to build new infrastructure, in several ways: deepening rivers and maritime channels; building new locks, new terminals and berths; facilitating new and better hinterland connections. Most infrastructure capacity expansion has been financed by public money. We want to have a closer look at whether and in what way p...

The urban last mile in logistics and distribution systems has become more complex and strategic for retailers as well as manufacturers. At the same time, the rapid evolution of e-commerce and the growth of both multichannel and omni-channel retailing channels are redefining the role of traditional last mile partners. In response, companies are designing new last mile distribution systems that are geared to highly dynamic customer needs. Pressure to develop new approaches to last mile deliveries is also coming from city planners and regulators, who are placing more restrictions on the movement...

Modern day expectations of corporate social responsibility increasingly include partners across the supply chain. The need to aggressively tackle the environmental dimensions of sustainability in the supply chain continues to grow as companies face external pressure from NGOs, consumers, and limited raw materials as well as internal pressures from employees and shareholders. There are numerous emerging examples where commitment to environmental sustainability has saved money and improved business value, while others argue that it can be time consuming, complex and expensive. Both are true.

Speaker: Shelly Fuller, Project Manager for the Confronting Climate Change: Fruit & Wine Industry Initiative

The South African fruit and wine industry exports 2.2 megatons of fruit and 412,000,000 liters of wine each year. As the threat of climate change continues to mount, governmental bodies and retailers are beginning to consider labeling schemes and other measures to track and reduce carbon emissions. In addition, the price of fuel will likely continue to rise, providing a potentially more significant incentive to reduce fossil fuel consumption. In response, the South African Fruit and Wine Industry worked together to develop a calculation methodology and local data set to help growers understand...
