Technology to solve e-fulfilment challenges in the digital age
As retailers complete for customer loyalty in an increasingly digital and connected world one of the key differentiators is delivery. How to get products to increasingly demanding customers where and when they want them? This has been one of the areas where physical stores have held an advantage over on line stores. However, on line stores are narrowing this gap by offering time definite delivery windows which match busy customer lifestyles. The Internet of Things (IoT) will offer opportunities to optimise supply chains by connecting real time track and trace technologies. Delivery is the new customer service battlefield.

Transportation Spend Optimization – A logistics user perspective
Transportation and shipping costs represent one of the largest spend categories for companies. Sourcing and managing this category is very complex for many reasons, including effectively managing various modes of transportation, inbound shipments from suppliers, outbound to customers, ongoing volatility in fuel costs and a dynamic supplier base, to name a few.

Elango Narayanan, FTL - Business Director, DHL Supply Chain India

1545 - 1630 IoT and Mobile applications for enhanced Supply Chain visibility

One of the biggest trends poised to change supply chain management is asset tracking, which gives companies a way to totally overhaul their supply chain and logistics operations by giving them the tools to make better decisions and save time and money. Asset tracking is not new by any means. Freight and shipping companies have used barcode scanners to track and manage their inventory. But new develop¬ments are making these scanners obsolete, as they can only collect data on broad types of items, rather than the location or condition of specific items. Similarly, IoT will impact warehousing, fleet management, inventory operations in significant ways.

Value Creation Through Effective Contract Management
Organisations in both the public and private sectors are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve financial and operational performance. New regulatory requirements, globalisation, increases in contract volumes and complexity have resulted in an increasing recognition of the importance and benefits of effective contract management. The growing recognition of the need to automate and improve contractual processes and satisfy increasing compliance and analytical needs has also led to an increase in the adoption of more formal and structured contract management procedures and an increase in the availability of solutions designed to address these needs.

Deepak Sharma, Vice President Supply Chain, Indus Towers

1730 – 1800

Consumer Driven Supply Chain Strategies
Forward-thinking businesses are continuously redesigning and improving their supply chains by using modelling technology to examine how their supply chains will perform under a wide range of market conditions and assumptions and analysing the trade-offs of cost, service and risk. Needless to say, it is the "design" of a supply chain that brings the maximum benefit across key metrics like cost, service, sustainability and risk.
