It’s five minutes to midnight! A sense of urgency was the common thread in all the presentations at EXCHAiNGE 2019. Some 250 leading supply chain and operations experts met to discuss the issues driving modern management at the 7th International EXCHAiNGE Supply Chain Summit, November 26–27, 2019.

Like last year, it was featured as a special highlight of the Hypermotion trade show in Frankfurt (November 26–28, 2019).

How do we achieve transparency in the supply chain? And is “new work” just old wine in new skins? These are only two in a broad spectrum of questions that leading supply chain and operations experts, together with some 250 attendees, will discuss at the 7th International EXCHAiNGE 2019 supply chain summit—November 26 and 27 at the Hypermotion trade show at Messe Frankfurt. EXCHAiNGE is an established networking platform that uses interactive formats to link new trends with strategic core functions of the supply chain. The four sessions highlight such mission-critical factors as technology, innovation, collaboration, mobility, sustainability, culture, and mindsets.
Technology, innovation, collaboration, mobility, sustainability, culture, mindsets: These are key elements of success in an integrated supply chain. Supply chain management and operations experts can learn how to successfully establish such qualities in their networks and ecosystems at EXCHAiNGE, the 7th international supply chain summit on November 26 and 27, 2019. This year’s theme: “Management 4.0—New Work & Digital Business.”

Travelling to the office in an autonomously driven car, taking an air taxi to the nearest airport and having a package delivered by drone?

Customers are clamoring for sustainable products even as they increase their consumption. The challenges: More than half of all product orders are returned. Environmentally friendly labels and green shipping options typically cost more than conventional handling. Service providers need to position themselves while also offering practical solutions. The EXCHAiNGE supply chain summit in Frankfurt (November 20–21 at Messe Frankfurt) will include a critical examination of which B2B and B2C services might be able to satisfy the specific demands for speed and sustainability.
