The new logic in food logistics

In the privacy of the IFFI network managers and professionals will learn about the latest developments within the field of logistics. Three modules cover the theory behind new logistical practices, the development of multi- and synchromodal transport systems and the application of logistics in different B2B food environments. They are facilitated by leading experts coming from the University of Twente and the international food ingredients world, providing scientific proof as well as the context of best practices and models.
Topics stem from the need for hands-on and ready-to-use logistical systems and collaboration methods. Professionals in supply chain management, logistics and related divisions will share insights and experiences. Attendants will have a better understanding how to apply logistics in food chains!
