On 10 April the first-ever European Supply Chain Day will take place. Activities such as school visits, tours of warehouses, opening up back-offices to visitors, talks and site visits will be taking place across the UK and throughout Europe on the same day.
Held under the umbrella of the European Logistics Association (ELA), the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), as the UK's nominated member association within the ELA, will be the primary contact point for all UK-based Supply Chain Day activities.
CILT Chief Executive Steve Agg states: 'European Supply Chain Day aims to raise awareness within the broader population of the value of logistics and supply chain activities in our everyday lives. A main focus will be with young people as we seek to inform them of the great career opportunities that exist within our profession. This is a unique opportunity to raise the profile of our profession and I encourage all levels of participation in this new and exciting European development.'
Previously, similar individual events have been held in a number of European countries to raise awareness of the logistics profession. European Supply Chain Day will now take place on the same day across Europe. Please see http://ciltuk.org.uk/supplychainday for updates and more information.
