Adrian Rens, CHEP’s Director, Supply Chain Emerging Europe, gave a presentation entitled “How to Build Transport Collaboration - the European Experience”. Adrian discussed trends in European logistics and the concept of transport collaboration as a way not only of saving company resources but also of reducing negative effects on the environment by preventing empty miles and encouraging co-operation between all market participants.
Andrey Pisartsov, CHEP Russia CEO, appeared at the panel session held the same day. He shared his view that the concept of sharing resources is a twenty-first century trend, since store layouts are changing, forcing retailers and manufacturers to look for new, efficient solutions in the field of re-usable tare among others.
In his address, Evgeniy Shiryaev, CHEP Russia’s Business Development Executive, discussed why the quality of containers had a direct effect on logistics processes, and how to make the supply chain more efficient by pooling re-usable pallets.
