Last year, some 40,000 people took part in the 458 Supply Chain Day events held across Germany and a good 20 other countries. Similarly impressive figures are expected this year, with many events already announced for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary and Turkey, and more being added each day. Some fantastic opportunities are in store on 27 April for visitors to gain an insight into logistics companies, research institutes and educational establishments – and all free of charge.
The full program and latest updates are available on the central Supply Chain Day website at: www.tag-der-logistik.de/en . The whole A to Z of logistics expertise is covered – from Wiesbaden-based Abbot Diagnostics GmbH, where visitors can watch how a European distribution center delivers products to over 150 different countries worldwide, to Zwei GmbH in Switzerland, which is offering truck-driver training taster sessions.
The German Logistics Association (BVL) devised Supply Chain Day to reach out to as many people as possible as a means of highlighting developments in this field and raising awareness of the vital role played by logistics. As anyone who has gone backstage knows, seeing day-to-day logistics in action can be a memorable and exciting experience. Last but not least, networking is another key aim of the Supply Chain Day events. Important contacts are made each year, and contracts are often agreed for training, jobs and collaboration.
