Zencargo, the digital freight forwarder has announced the arrival of a new, summit-style supply chain event, Navigate.
Scheduled for 14:00 to 17:15 BST on the 13th May, Navigate brings together supply chain leaders from across the industry – from shipping to transportation to technology – to discuss how businesses can navigate through change, which is the theme for Navigate 2021.
Already scheduled to speak are Patrik Berglund, the CEO of rates benchmarking platform Xeneta, John Urban, the founder of GT Nexus, one of the original control tower solutions, and Mark Taylor, managing director of Britannia Bureau, a consultancy specialising in customs and Brexit.
After a year of large scale disruption from the pandemic, Brexit and the volatility of the freight market, the event looks toward the longer-term impact of those changes. Speakers at Navigate will also be discussing organisational change, including how to make transformation projects actually happen, with advice from businesses who have had success in implementing new projects within their supply chain.
“Change is inevitable,” says Richard Fattal, chief commercial officer at Zencargo. “In supply chain, that has always been true, but this past year has underscored that being ready for change – and having the agility in your supply chain to deal with it – is non-negotiable.”
Also on the line-up is Lars Jensen, CEO of Vespucci Maritime. After spending twenty years working with shipping lines, most extensively at Maersk, he joins Navigate to discuss the relationship between carriers and shippers moving forward, from the more controlled command of supply and demand that carriers have learned in recent months, to the change in contractual relationships between parties – and what impact that has on supply planning.
John Urban, the founder of GT Nexus, will be in discussion with Tamir Strauss, the chief product and technology officer of Zencargo, to discuss how technology can help logistics teams embed positive transformation at the heart of their supply chain, whether that’s by standardising processes or simply automating exception management.
With hundreds of supply chain practitioners expected to attend, Navigate offers the opportunity to take the pulse of the logistics profession, and share your experiences, and learn from others in the field.
