“Building on the success of previous supply chain week events, SCW 2017 will have exciting additions to the program including new industry sectors; namely Rail and Mining, evolving retail technologies, impacts of new legislation in healthcare, the importance of supply chain visibility across intermodal transport, and leveraging global marketplaces as a platform into new markets,” Marcel Sieira, head of customer engagement and business development at GS1 Australia, said.

“Covering the areas of Food and Beverage, Healthcare, Rail and Mining, Retail, and Trade and Transport, GS1 members and non-members will be able to explore the challenges and opportunities for the changing supply chain landscape of today.” he said.

Spread over two weeks, the event’s dynamic line-up is jam-packed with the latest industry insights, global developments, local success stories, regulatory updates, future trends and access to industry experts and solution providers.
