The Logistics Business presents at CILT Outsourcing & Procurement Forum Event

David Bingham, Executive Director, The Logistics Business, will be speaking at the CILT Outsourcing and Procurement Forum event in September 2015.  The event is part of a series of Masterclasses organised by the Forum exploring the principle steps of the Logistics Outsourcing Life Cycle.  The event will be hosted by J W Sainsbury at its Bedford Distribution Centre.

As part of his presentation, David Bingham will talk openly about two major outsourcing projects (one shared user model and one single user dedicated), the implementation challenges and how they were addressed.  He will focus on the differences between the two models but also highlight the similarities in terms of implementation.

The second stage in the Outsourcing Life Cycle – Procure & Implement – is of critical importance and was split into two events. Stage 2A was hosted by law firm, Wright Hassall, at its Leamington Spa offices in February and focussed on procurement and contracting.

The Stage 2B event, in September, will concentrate on Managing the Outsourcing Implementation with a programme of presentations and the very popular, expert led discussion workshops.  Delegates will also have the opportunity for a site visit to the Sainsbury’s TU Distribution Centre.

The Outsourcing and Procurement Forum is one of 20 professional forums, within the supply chain sector, managed by CILT.  The Forum is chaired by Jo Godsmark, Director & Lead Consultant, Labyrinth Logistics Consultants.

The event are extremely popular and fill up quickly.  If you are interested in attending or would like to know more please visit: The Chartered Institute of Logistics Institute of Logistics and Transport
