Supply Chain Network 2019

Category: Corporate Events

The Supply Chain Network offers keynote speeches either focusing on recent supply chain research, a successful supply chain project or a recent book in this area. It is an ideal way to stay informed about the latest developments in Supply Chain Management and a great opportunity to grow your network by meeting your peers, current students, alumni, and our Vlerick faculty.

For 2019, we have again selected a first inspiring keynote session on a hot topic in the logistics and supply chain management field. Our activities are free of charge, but subscription is required. More keynote sessions will be added soon!

Logistics in the era of Artificial Intelligence – Revolution or evolution?
By Prof Robert Boute (Vlerick Business School) & Joren Gijsbrechts (KUL)


Supply chains will evolve towards one eco-system, known as the “Physical Internet”, where freight is shipped like e-mail traffic: making use of smart algorithms and the network of networks. Companies like Amazon already make extensive use of Artificial Intelligence to optimize their logistics networks – also for us it provides opportunities to improve the efficiency and sustainability of our supply chains.
