Transporeon Summit 2022

September 20, 2022 — London, UK

It’s time to come together. As a community. As thought leaders. As dedicated practitioners.

We’re bringing together the greatest minds in transportation, logistics, and supply chain innovation to share insights, predict future trends, and showcase emerging technology.

Together we will explore how to:

  • Automate procurement with data and behavioral science

  • Use real-time data insights to make smarter decisions on the go 

  • Manage CO2 emissions to meet sustainability targets

  • Maximize the value of real time visibility by integrating it into the full transport execution process

Let’s inspire each other, share knowledge and redefine what’s possible. Let’s create the future together.

Supply chains have never been normal: a playbook for success moving forward 

Stop searching for a “new normal” in supply chain management. The truth is that supply chains have never been normal — they have always been defined by change and uncertainty. This is why “exception management” is part of every supply chain professional’s job description. Instead of waiting for a new normal to emerge, what companies need is a new playbook for success moving forward. In this presentation, industry analyst Adrian Gonzalez will share several key principles companies should include in their playbooks to help them navigate the road ahead, wherever it may lead.

Seeing spots: using behavioural science to automate procurement on the spot market 

Powered by real-time data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and behavioural science, Autonomous Procurement is the only tool in the market that helps you leverage the spot market for your benefit. See how global logistics leaders use Autonomous Procurement as a prime option in their transportation assignment route to find capacity, save up to 12% in spot buying, and improve their carrier relationships.

14:45 

There’s no business on a dead planet: managing CO2 emissions to meet sustainability targets 

Improved Carbon Visibility can help you to precisely measure and report your carbon footprint across the entire supply chain and all transport modalities while also providing insights to help reduce future emissions. See how global companies like IKEA were able to reduce CO2 emissions by 27% for multimodal transportation with Transporeon Carbon Visibility.

15:30 

Innovation & networking corners: deep dive into emerging tech with industry leaders 

  • The future of procurement is automation 
  • Using data to achieve greater sustainability 
  • Better execution starts with better visibility
  • Platform evolution: multi-modal and part-load execution for shippers

Join the corner that fits your interests and get a close-up look at new and upcoming innovations within logistics. We’ll save time for questions, discussions, and provide the chance to network with fellow industry insiders. 
 

16:30  

The time is now: maximising the impact of real time visibility with end-to-end integration

Observation and data collection is crucial — but value only comes when you’re able to put the knowledge you’ve gained into practice. That’s why embedding real time visibility into your transportation management platform is crucial for end-to-end visibility, improving the efficiency of complex transports. See how extended visibility can lead to reductions in waiting times, improved asset utilization, and cost savings. 
 

17:00  

On the shoulders of giants: building connections with vertical integration 

The transportation process — and especially time slot management — is full of inefficiencies, as systems and tools are unable to pass information to each other, leading to more work for carriers. That’s why vertical integration, not only in the retail and FMCG verticals but across all industries, is key for optimizing supply chains and saving costs. Hear how large-scale logistics operators are synchronizing transport processes to gain mutual insights into the entire supply chain based on real-time visibility and yard management.
