New trends, current challenges and the future of logistics were brought to the fore, anew, as LBC Business Solutions spearheaded the annual Asia Logistics Summit held at the Solaire Resorts Manila.
In partnership with ASIA CEO Events, the nation’s largest business events organization, this year’s summit focused on the theme: “All Good Things Must Come to a New Beginning”. Topics discussed during the whole-day forum included: Uber-ization of trucking, warehouse and even logistics staff ; Robotization of warehouses; the rise in government infrastructure investments; omni channel shipping; supply chain social responsibility; the blurred lines between logistics providers; and the rise of virtual logistics teams.
