A record number of 60 executive participants from 29 leading logistics, metals and manufacturing companies attended the seminar held at the Hyatt Regency Düsseldorf, Germany, on June 18, 2013. The annual event has become the exclusive venue for logistics, production and supply chain professionals to discuss cutting-edge technology and techniques in SCP&O in order to keep ahead of the competition.
Attendees received presentations from a number of Quintiq customers, including Vlisco Group, P&O Ferrymasters, Saint-Gobain Glass Logistics and MCB Nederland, all of whom spoke about the SCP&O puzzles they faced and how Quintiq’s platforms helped solve them.
Quintiq’s Supply Chain Executive Seminar also consisted of presentations and demonstrations from Quintiq consultants and leading supply chain and logistics industry experts from the academic field.
