For immediate release: Eye for Transport (EFT), the global leader in business intelligence and networking for the transport, logistics and supply chain industry, is pleased to announce the return of its 3PL & Supply Chain Summit for June 5-7, 2018. Supply chain and logistics leaders such as UPS, Home Depot, Hub Group, Mattel, DHL Supply Chain, Land O’Lakes, ArcBest and Newell Brands will take part in one of the industry’s biggest gatherings, with over 900 attendees, exclusive keynotes and four future-proofing discussion tracks.

“The Supply Chain Summit is one of the few events I attend each year," said Charles Blevins, Vice President, Supply Chain, Dart Container Corporation. “It gives me an opportunity to get an update on the transportation market, the 3PL market, get a technology update and engage in discussions with other top supply chain executives.”

With logistics and supply chain executives facing a complete transformation due to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, eCommerce and changing markets, global experts will discuss key ways to distinguish the major disruptors from the hype. Topics will include 3D printing, AI and blockchain, eCommerce and perfecting last mile delivery, while tackling the future-driving needs and expectations of customers.

Our speaker line-up includes new and noteworthy keynotes:

  • Mark Holifield, EVP Supply Chain, Home Depot
  • Peter Gibbons, CSCO, Mattel
  • Cindy Miller, President Global Freight Forwarding, UPS
  • Jim Tompkins, CEO, Tompkins International

“Our research has shown that, with the changes that digitalization has brought to our industry, transformation and innovation will be vital components for LSP survival,” said Sarah Reynolds, Event Director. “LSPs will need to embrace new technologies to remain competitive and off-set economic and political concerns affecting the industry.”

Held in Atlanta on 5-7th June 2018, The 3PL & Supply Chain Summit 2018 is the meeting place for the forces of innovation, transformation and connectivity that will fundamentally reshape the supply chain industry over the next ten years.

Discounts on tickets are available on until December 1st, 2017. See thefull speaker list, agenda highlights and ways to get involved in the event brochure here.
