Why You Should Attend

Warehouse Efficiency & Productivity Excellence

Warehousing is rapidly moving up the value chain towards an increasingly knowledge-intensive and innovation-driven activity making warehouse management an extremely crucial function of the supply chain.

Ensuring smooth and lean distribution efforts, enhancing warehouse and employee safety whilst minimizing costs will always be the agenda. Furthermore, a rise in customers expectations poses greater challenges in customizing warehouse operation to meet those increasingly high expectations. With a forever changing environment value added processes as well as crisis and risk management procedures are also finding its place on the agenda.

Due to the pressing nature of the business, warehousing and logistics challenges are on top of every organizations mind. Warehouse and logistics managers have to constantly exceed customer expectations on timely delivery and flawless quality, deliver competent and accurate operations, and effectively manage inventory and forecast demands. As competition in Asia stiffens, organizations are seeking warehouse services with extremely thin margins.

In such a rapid technological advancement and changing business environment, this conference would be vital as it delivers knowledge and recent insights on methods and techniques with a focus on performance optimization, lean warehousing, third and fourth party logistics management, technology automation for upgrading of facilities and equipments, and staying on track in time of crisis.

Warehouse Management & Logistic Excellence training also highlights contemporary options to enhance your warehouse operations to exceed global expectations. In addition, strategies for sustainable operational excellence in the aspects of cost control, space maximization and warehouse accuracies will be discussed to improve your process efficiencies. Join us to take advantage of the rapid evolvement in the industry and transform present risks into valuable opportunities!
