About The NG Supply Chain Summit:

On 18-20 November 2019, the US edition of our NG Supply Chain Summit will bring together senior decision-makers and business leaders from across North America at the fantastic The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, Florida, to share their views on how to tackle the biggest challenges in supply chain management today.

Industry 4.0, the move to “place sensors in everything, create networks everywhere, automate anything, and analyze everything to significantly improve performance and customer satisfaction”, has become disconnected from the realities of real supply chain organisations. With no silver bullet to business transformation, there is a need for a common mission statement across departments to break free of silo-thinking and continuously improve. At the Next Generation Supply Chain Leadership Summit, learn to balance agility, alignment and adeptness in tackling the key challenges of the day. Including: automating last mile costs, piloting ERP solutions with rapidity, and leveraging artificial intelligence to optimize intermodal networking.
