Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation (OL&T) will be attending the 2011 LogiChem European Bulk and Specialty Chemical Supply Chain Conference, held on April 5-7, 2011, in Antwerp, Belgium. Elemica, along with BASF, the world’s leading chemical company, will also host a breakout session on fully integrated supply chains, and best practices and trends that are shaping the chemical industry in today’s market. Mr. Ralf Kahre, Senior Manager e-solutions for BASF, will present a BASF supply chain integration case study on how the company manages variability and complexity outside of BASF’s walls.
“We are pleased to once again sponsor this industry leading event,” says Mike McGuigan, CEO of Elemica. “Sharpening business models to drive performance, managing complexity across the supply chain, lowering supply chain end-to-end costs, and identifying areas within companies for working capital improvement are many of the issues that Elemica tackles collaboratively with our clients.”
Top global chemical companies, and a line-up of the world’s most senior chemical supply chain experts, including many Elemica clients, will deliver presentations on big-picture issues and trends in global supply chain markets. The three-day agenda includes presentations from BASF on their transformation across the global BASF supply network, The Dow Chemical Company on sourcing materials and logistics, and Clariant on the impact of the bullwhip effect — supply chain inefficiencies, excess inventory, inadequate capacity and lost revenue.
LogiChem will address how European chemical companies are faced with strengthened competition from the Middle East, concerns about a European capacity crisis, ongoing merger and acquisition (M&A) activity, and prevailing cost volatilities. Elemica helps chemical companies drive business growth through their supply chain by automating manual processes, streamlining operations, and facilitating collaboration between suppliers and all trading partners.
Elemica will have a private meeting room at the event. For more information, or to arrange a meeting with an Elemica executive, please contact Nadja Lannert: email@example.com
