The scalex conference is taking place in Germany for the first time as part of Hypermotion on 12 November 2020.
The focus is on Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence, and discussion will centre on the exploration of resilience, innovation and performance. These topics have gained increasing urgency due to the far-reaching and radical changes taking place today, including as a result of COVID-19, Brexit and recognisable moves towards deglobalisation. Various perspectives will be illuminated in specialist presentations and moderated panel discussions in which the audience is able to participate. By integrating a wide range of players from business, science, research, cities and municipalities, the event maintains a broad perspective, and each session is followed by extensive opportunities for sharing experiences and ideas.
Conference programme on 12 November 2020
What things do we want to do differently, better, faster, more digitally and more sustainably? What is the right goal – what are the best solutions – and what routes must we take to successfully transform cities, regions, companies and supply chains? You will find the answers to these and other questions at the sessions comprising scalex:
Session 1: Resilience in Global Supply Chains (09:30 - 11:00 h)
Against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, the issue of resilience in global supply chains has become increasingly important. The efficiency advantages of cross-border supply relationships will continue to be important in the future, but further precautions must be taken against disruptions in the supply chain. What are these and what should be done?
Session 2: Urban Logistics (11:30 - 13:00 h)
Micro-depots and cargo-bikes dominate the discussion in urban logistics. The advantages of digital solutions for efficient and sustainable logistics for the "last" mile for cities, municipalities and companies have so far been discussed less. What are these advantages and which solutions are already available or under development today?
Session 3: Smart Logistics Solutions (13:30 - 15:00 h)
Developing and implementing smart solutions for customers is one of the key objectives of the logistics industry. Assets such as vehicles, equipment or even infra- and superstructures are important, their use or what is produced with them is changing. SMART Warehouses, SMART Ports, SMART Vehicles etc. determine the discussion. What is smart and what added value can be offered to customers?
