Online lecture: Supply Chain Reality

The Denford – Van Moer Logistics
The year 2021 is coming to an end. Hopefully, all goes well with you and your loved ones.

The BNP Paribas Fortis Chair and the Dennie Lockefeer Chair jointly organize the free-of-charge online event ‘Supply Chain Reality’ on Thursday 20 January 2022, from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m.. The event will be held in English.

In the lecture, the current and future challenges experienced in the supply chain will be discussed. Late Dennie Lockefeer inspires the joint event. Dennie was closely involved with the BNP Paribas Fortis Chair. He took an active role at the fifth café, raising awareness of the reverse modal shift. In addition, he brought the issues of demurrage and detention to the public’s attention. The theme aroused interest among various actors in the logistics supply chain. On 5 September 2017, the BNP Paribas Fortis Chair held three discussion meetings led by Prof. Dr. Christa Sys. Anno 2021, the issue of D&D is still high on the agenda.

In order to make an actual representation of the challenges encountered in the supply chain, it is interesting to ask for your input in advance. In this way, we can take into account the challenges you have in your supply chain.
