Logistics, NEWS


The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) - one of the world’s leading educational organisations for the supply chain management and logistics sectors - will hold its annual European Conference at the Park Plaza Hotel, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, from May 15th to 17th, 2013.

The theme of next year’s event is “How to Cut Supply Chain Costs without Paying the Price”. The event will offer a variety of educational sessions and networking opportunities to global supply chain executives.

The Amsterdam event follows a long line of successful past CSCMP European conferences; the last took place in Frankfurt in April 2012, and was attended by approximately 200 executives from major manufacturers and industry suppliers. The CSCMP European conference is a regular annual feature of the organisation’s global educational programme.

CSCMP’s CEO Rick Blasgen said: “The secret to the world’s top-performing companies is the efficient and expertly-managed supply chains that support them. Forward-thinking practitioners understand that the key to a well-run supply chain is to manage those things that are within their control, and anticipate and mitigate those that are not. The single component they’re most able to control is costs.

“CSCMP’s Europe Conference will share the insights, best practices, and techniques of leading global supply chain executives. Delegates will be able to use this intelligence to streamline their own organizations’ supply chains and so significantly reduce costs. Attending this event is a small investment, with potentially major returns.”

The conference programme will focus on reducing administrative and operating costs, improved sourcing strategies, and sustainability as a driver of supply chain cost reductions.

The event is now open for delegate bookings, with concessionary rates for CSCMP members and students. For full conference details and bookings, visit
