Digitising Supply Chain operations for better business outcomes

14th June 2023, Amsterdam 18:30 - 21:30 CET
In partnership

Dinner Location: Rosarium

Good evening…

Welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with HERE Technologies and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Inflation tends to lead to initiatives that use assets more efficiently and cut energy usage along all aspects of supply chains, and improving asset utilisation relies on understanding freight flows in as close to real time as possible, and enacting optimisation in a dynamic environment.

Modern logistics companies are looking at ways to increase the efficiency in of their logistics processes and meet delivery expectations. Digitalisation of the operational logistics environment forms the basis of such a transformation, where consistent location data and geocoding quality help achieve improved real-time visibility of your company assets.

A cloud location intelligence platform also facilitates a private and secure mapping layer, which allows enterprises to build and maintain proprietary location logic and data.

And with the likes of Amazon leading the way in revolutionising the world of shipping with eco-friendlier, quicker commerce, and more efficient deliveries, how can we learn from them, and others like them?

From the entire team at Meet the Boss, HERE Technologies and AWS, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you updated and equipped with precise information to guide your company in the right direction.

Bon Appetit!
