The global pandemic has exposed the vulnerabilities and risks lurking in chemical supply chains. While it has presented several challenges, it has accelerated a rapid move to a digital world, opening up new opportunities for innovation and growth, all aimed at increasing supply chain resiliency and transparency.
There have been calls for change in the past, but this presents the perfect opportunity to thrive in a new reality, where we reconfigure supply chains, manage disruptions, and improve visibility by enhancing digital capabilities.
Against this backdrop, GPCA hosted the first virtual edition of its Supply Chain Conference, which was held under the theme of Powering a resilient, responsive, and agile supply chain. The event was a huge success and provided ample opportunities for participants to network and explore potential channels of cooperation.
Almajdouie Logistics and MdR were the networking partner for the event, which highlighted learnings from the pandemic, reflected on the tactical steps taken by leaders to thrive in the future, and presented opportunities for supply chain transition and growth in a post-pandemic world. Our support is in line with the company’s philosophy to view the pandemic as an opportunity rather than a hindrance.
The event followed a unique format blended with thought-provoking keynotes, fireside chats, case studies, digital seminars, interactive masterclasses, and engaging panel discussions. There was also an opportunity to “meet in-private” with interested parties to exchange business updates using the digital platform.
