Event description

Description

In parallel with the development and growth of other Industry 4.0-enabling technologies in the region, Sheffield is now seen as a leader in advanced supply chain management (‘Logistics 4.0’), both as a driver for the city’s growing digital and manufacturing industries and as a sector in its own right.

Supply chain management will transform over the next few years with the emergence of techniques such as advanced data analytics, digital supply chains and block-chain technology, autonomous decision making, smart warehousing and intra-logistics - all of which will impact the Sheffield City Region, creating new opportunities for regeneration and growth.

Freeths invites you to a seminar held in association with international technology mergers and acquisitions advisers, Hampleton Partners

We’ll be discussing issues including:

  • What is Sheffield’s economic opportunity as a centre for advanced logistics and supply chain management?
  • What are the fundamental drivers for the new technologies?
  • What are the enabling technologies in the development of smart logistics, and what will be the impact of block-chain?
  • How can academic research in this sector best be commercialised and how can the city best develop effective partnerships and technology transfer strategies?
  • Will Bitcoin become the new ‘reserve currency’ across the supply chain?
  • Why the current accelerating rate of change and disruption in the economy puts effective commercialisation and M&A at the centre of any long-term strategy for success in supply chain management.
  • Why planned M&A will be a critical component for advanced manufacturing companies to achieve growth, scale, internationalise, secure IP and drive continuous innovation and investment

The event will comprise an initial plenary event, followed by a choice of break-outs
