Supported by some key facts and figures, Peter will give his views on the how the market is likely to react, providing guidance on how business should prepare supply chains and logistics for the eventual outcome of Brexit.

Based on Peter’s predictions - how can technology help you to deliver against the new issues that will face the sector?
Sustainability and environmental awareness have become top retail issues in 2019 and are set to do the same in 2020. The government, retailers (and consumers) will be putting pressure on logistics and 3PL’s to achieve greener supply chains – be it through reducing carbon emissions, paperless warehousing or reduced packaging – the list goes on.
In the past much attention has been placed on manufacturing – yet in this session, we will highlight how there will be a shift in focus on the service sectors – (3PL) industry. We will explore how collaboration combined with technology can help.
The global warming crisis have imposed an even greater need for action to be made now – and if it matters to your customers, then it should matter to you.
