Warehousing Best Practices
I’m honored that Groenewout have asked me to chair the event that day. I will kick off the event with a short presentation on trends and technology in e-commerce logistics, after which I will introduce the main speaker of the afternoon: Groenewout’s e-commerce warehousing and logistics expert Arthur Zondervan. Arthur will share common and best practices in e-commerce warehousing with a focus on mechanization and automation.
Discussing Logistics & e-Commerce
After a short break I will then chair the panel discussion in which four e-commerce experts will discuss current developments in e-commerce logistics. The panel will consist of:
- Jeroen Dekker, Managing Partner, Active Ants E-Commerce – Logistiek
- Roel Megens, Site Manager Blokker en Retail Logistics
- Jarno Devedeleer, Supply Chain Manager Online Non Food, Colruyt Group
- Reinier Holthof, Operations Manager, Loavies
Each brings extensive knowledge and experience in e-commerce logistics to the table. Active Ants is a logistics service provider specializing in e-commerce. Blokker and Colruyt are retailers that have both an online and offline offering, and Loavies is an e-tailer. Their different perspectives will ensure a lively discussion. The audience can contribute to the discussion as well.
The afternoon will end with networking, drinks and a walking dinner.
