12:15 – 12:30 Arrival & Registrations

13:15 – 15:30 Presentations and Q&A followed by refreshments

You are invited to attend an event created for businesses operating within the chemical supply chain throughout the Northern region; an event where your attendance can actually influence the future of your supply chain as well as positively impact on the future of your business.

The LJMU Chemical Supply Chain Forum has been formed in association with C₃ to create a collaboration of academia and commercial organisations that want to contribute to the development of solutions facing the industry today. How will “smart contracts” and the “internet of things” impact our daily business or come to our aid in terms of quality control and liability relating to goods in transit or reducing carbon emissions?

Individual companies within the supply chain may not have the resource or critical mass to successfully resolve the issues themselves, so this forum aims to provide the interactive arena it needs for these companies to collaboratively take action and shape the future of the industry. Significant and influential industry leaders will be present and involved in the Q&A section of the event, allowing delegates to interact directly and network following the formal proceedings.

Who Should Attend?

Companies that would most benefit and be key to the discussions include manufacturers, importers, exporters, logistics service providers and others closely associated in their supply chain.

Keynote Speakers
Our speakers will inform and discuss distinct topical issues and innovative solutions including; Degree Apprenticeships, Sensor Technology in the supply chain and reducing your Carbon Footprint – how optimisation with freight can improve the environment. Encompassing the whole event will be the subject of collaboration – what stops people collaborating? How can collaborating lead businesses to a greater good?

Deadline for registrations is Friday 24 March.
