TORONTO, Ont. — Throughout Canada, the variety of issues and challenges faced by supply chain professionals is not limited to gridlock on the road. SCLs Fall Symposium Conquering Gridlock: Infrastructure, Miles-to-Market & Human Capital aims to provide a regional perspective of obstacles facing different parts of the country, while also discovering the path to efficient and sustainable supply chains.
This Symposium offers both research and theory, balanced with practical approaches and case studies, SCL explains. It will delve into the “gridlock” that not only faces Canadian roads, ports and bridges, but human capital as well.
Government plans for the future of Canadian infrastructure will be discussed as well as how to address staffing needs in an industry struggling to maintain enough qualified personnel. An in-depth look at the reality of offshore sourcing will feature new research, practical insights into how business really happens, and the cultural side of business relationships. Gridlock and the increased miles-to-market of offshore sourcing have an implicit effect on the ecological footprint, a vital part of a sustainable supply chain
