Freight Logistics Forum
Due to the current Covid restrictions, this event has reached capacity.
If you would like to be added to a waitlist should these levels change, please email Kris at: [email protected]
With work currently underway on a national supply chain strategy, the disruption throughout New Zealand remains and will likely persist for a considerable time.
The Forum is all about the key players involved in the freight logistics supply chain, how they fit together and what their future strategies and direction are, plus the key challenges and what this means for exporters, importers and manufacturers.
It also provides an opportunity for facilitating an open, constructive discussion around the context and reasons behind some of these issues.
Most importantly, this event will enable you to connect with, learn from and help others in the manufacturing and exporting community.
