WEBINAR: Retail profitability the focus of new event collaboration between Zencargo and Bis Henderson

Retail margins are under increasing threat from soaring freight rates, poor carrier reliability and fluctuating demand. In response, Zencargo, the digital freight forwarder has announced a new online forum to analyse end-to-end retail profitability.

Scheduled for 14:00 on the 12th August, Guarding profitability through disruption: the retailers guide is being delivered in collaboration with Louisa Hosegood, of global supply chain consultancy Bis Henderson, who formerly held senior logistic roles within Marks and Spencer and John Lewis.

The online event comes in response to the unprecedented disruption in ocean and air freight that threatens the profitability, and even the survival, of many businesses. The event’s moderator, and Zencargo co-founder and CCO, Richard Fattal explains:

“The rules have completely changed, and every business needs to be keeping an eye on their bottom line profitability. It’s not just about logistics teams any more – finance, sales and data teams need to be working together to create joined up decision making that works for the whole business.”

“The changes in logistics, commercial environment and social habits formed in the last 18 months will have long-lasting consequences. Consumers will be voting with their wallets based on new values, higher expectations and evolving ways of living and working. The businesses that can adapt to these changes are the ones that will be able to maintain and grow profits.”

The topics under discussion include:

  • Analysing and comparing the commercial environment of 2021 with recent years
  • Managing customer expectations through uncertainty
  • Calculating landed costs of goods in a volatile environment
  • Updating planning and execution strategies to maximise flexibility and profit.

Zencargo announces online event to address the new world of peak rates

As freight rates from Asia to Europe pass the $20,000 per 40ft mark, Zencargo, the digital freight forwarder has announced a new online forum to discuss what shippers can do to manage disruption in their supply chains. 

Scheduled for 14:00 on the 8th July, Surviving Peak Freight is being delivered in collaboration with Lars Jensen, global shipping advisor and CEO of Vespucci Maritime, an ocean freight consultancy.

The online event comes in response to the unprecedented disruption currently shaking ocean freight, where rates are at an all time high, while reliability is at an all time low. Experts now warn that conditions will be disrupted to some extent until H2 2022. In this scenario, the question is no longer ‘When will things get back to normal?’ but ‘What can I do to survive right now?’.

While options for shippers are limited, there are opportunities to manage disruption by planning ahead, collaborating with suppliers and being strategic in modal prioritisation according to shipment value and urgency. This event will explore these strategies, as well as shining a light on what shippers can expect through the rest of the year and into 2022, including: 

  • What we can learn from the current ‘perfect storm’ of rates
  • How to plan for costs in a volatile market
  • Scenario planning for different lengths of disruption
  • Strategies to manage spend at scale
