This webinar intends to give insights in how a potential redesign of supply chains/distribution models will affect the logistics industry as a whole and the Netherlands specifically. Both the Dutch main ports as well as one of the key logistics hotspots in the Netherlands will provide the audience with a broad picture covering the entire supply chain.

How can you anticipate to these changes and successfully apply this to your own organization?
