GS1 smartbox, e2e value stream (r)evolution
Crates are a well-known supply chain solution at retailers for many years to store products in the warehouse and facilitate picking & shipping to the stores. In the upstream supply chain brand owners are packing, storing & shipping the same products in corrugate single-used outer cases. This non-synchronized setup causes several losses on cost & sustainability.
Join us to learn & interact together how GS1 Smartbox can disrupt the traditional supply chain delivering cost reduction and positive sustainability footprint for all stakeholders.
The discusion will be introduced by Wouter Schaekers and Karen Arkesteyn.
Wouter is Product Supply Director at Procter & Gamble and president of GS1 Belgium. He is a strong believer that we need partnership and co-development to transform our supply chains into value chains enabling a circular economy, and to explore together innovative solutions to be Feasible, Sustainable, and Profitable.
Karen is Innovation Manager at GS1 Belgium & Luxembourg, with a strong background in Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC). Having a heart for sustainability and being on a mission to increase efficiency, Karen supports and manages innovative initiatives to enable the circular economy.
