Some of the leading names in UK supply chain and logistics gathered last week at the SCALA Annual Logistics Debate at Wroxall Abbey, Warwick with the agenda to discuss “Can logistics companies drive supply chain improvements for manufacturers and retailers?”
The debate, hosted by leading supply chain consultants SCALA, was chaired by David Grahamslaw, vice chair for CILT West Midlands, with an expert panel comprising: Trevor Ashworth, director of food retail supply chain for the Co-operative Group; David Howorth, supply chain director for General Mills; Lindsay Haselhurst, development director of retail for Wincanton and Ian Stansfield, distribution director for ASDA.
Following the speeches there was a robust question and discussion with the audience. Questions ranged from coping with the logistical needs of the 2012 London Olympics to the need to embed logistics into the education of younger people.
The SCALA Annual Logistics Debate, attended by over 150 delegates, was supported by the CILT UK, AEB Advanced Global Trade Solutions, Slimstock, BiS Henderson, Spring Global Mail and Wincanton.
