Learn how the digital supply chain is changing the game for logistics service providers

Products, manufacturing processes, and operational assets, as well as the entire supply chain, are being transformed by digital technologies. Manufacturers, suppliers and logistics partners are now connecting in real time, resulting in digitalized demand and supply networks that are more efficient and responsive than ever. By embracing digital transformation, companies are gaining better end-to-end visibility across the extended supply chain, enabling them to plan, respond and deliver like never before.

During the third annual International SAP Conference on the Extended Supply Chain on November 3-4 there will be the opportunity to talk to executives, experts, and partners from a variety of industries. As logistics service provider this is a great chance to meet and speak to companies within your industry, but you also have the chance to build in innovative ideas that related industries are sharing. Bechtle, Beiersdorf, BSH Hausgeräte, Daimler Buses, Japan Tobacco International, Plansee Group, Vestas Wind Systems, and Vestel are sharing their experiences. On top you will hear all the news about the latest and upcoming solutions.

Day 1 will focus on supply chain, product lifecycle and asset management. On Day 2 we have prepared an entire track for Logistics Service Providers. Kevin Schock, global head of transportation & logistics at SAP, will lead you through the track that is running in parallel to two additional supply chain tracks.

Why you should be attending:

  1. It`s all about the supply chain: You can listen to an interesting panel discussion on the digital supply chain. SAP thought leaders will provide insights into the digital strategy and road map to a digital company.  LSPs can hear directly from their customers about what they are doing and what they need as they move forward with digital supply chain strategies.
  2. We have prepared a session on dynamic logistics pricing with SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) and SAP HANA. You will be able to see how to increase agility of the transportation industry and working to overcome inflexibility of rigid pricing systems. At the end of the session you will know how to utilize SAP solutions to drive profitability based on market conditions.
  3. Another session will talk about enhancing TMS Implementation with Comprehensive B2B Messaging for Logistics Service Providers and Shippers. Descartes will join us on stage and dive into security, fiscal fillings and seamless operations via the Descartes Global Logistics Network.
  4. The Austrian Rail Cargo group will share their transformation story using SAP Transportation Management to support their corporate strategies.

These are only a few highlights that will happen during Day 2 in the Logistics Service Providers Track. Lots to learn and discuss. A full preview of the program can be found online where you are also be able to register.
