Campus for Supply Chain Management

Topic: Logistics driven by innovation: How will cities cope with the increasing parcel demand?

Modern day Logistics and Supply Chain Management find itself in a turmoil of rapid change and evolution. There is a constant flow of new ideas, concepts and technologies that are supposed to tackle the problems associated with the Supply Chain Management. Simultaneously increasing pace, efficiency and sustainability prove to be challenging and evermore important as the global parcel volume is predicted to double by 2025.  
Discussions will center around the question of how the necessary delivery systems and infrastructure will be provided for the ever-increasing demand for deliveries. The topic will deal with the challenges of Last-Mile delivery, optimisation of existing and creation of new processes and how innovation will drive new ideas to progress Supply Chain Management.
