PICS Belgium and ABCAL invite you to our new seminar :

Supply Chain Hot Topic
Digitalisation : from concept to reality and practice

What real improvements to different areas of the Supply Chain are driven by concepts of Industry 4.0? Do digital solutions deliver to their promises to the areas such as traceability of the assets and distribution optimisation?

In our second seminar of series “Supply Chain Hot Topic” we are glad to present the practitioners – those who did put in place solutions. They will share their experience with you.

  • How does Sonaca improve the planification for its main customers, while at the same time optimising the stock of finished goods in house and in customers locations thanks to the traceability of returnables?

  • How to exploit collected operational data in order to model and simulate the Supply Chain with the aim to optimise Inbound and Outbound logistics of the plant Arteco, Total Group?
