How Jaguar Land Rover manages supplier relationships

The UK’s motor industry has been a major success story over the past few years, and key to that has been strengthening supply chain relationships.

Since 2011 global vehicle manufacturers have committed to over £5.5 billion worth of projects in the UK, with more value added down the supply chain. Jaguar Land Rover has been at the forefront of these developments.

Michael Mychajluk, supply chain and external engagement manager, will outline the experience of a leading OEM and how to manage supplier relationships and expectations, when he speaks at the Logistics & Supply Chain Conference in March.

Mondelēz, the parent of Cadbury, will also use the conference to examine its biggest logistics and supply chain challenge in 20 years.

Jens-Ulf Hinze, customer supply chain and innovation manager at Mondelēz World Travel Retail, will describe how Mondelēz delivered a 14 month consolidation of DCs across Europe, completing the integration of the Cadbury’s business and providing a platform for its ‘One order, one delivery, one invoice’ promise to partners. Other benefits have included streamlining of administration and paperwork, and harmonisation of delivery terms.

Supply Chain Standard’s 13th annual Logistics & Supply Chain Conference has presentations from leading supply chain professionals. It also provides networking opportunities for supply chain executives looking for the latest information, insight and examples of best practice.

The conference takes place on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th March 2015 in central London.

Lead partner for the conference is Ceva Logistics, one of the world leading logistics companies, providing end-to-end design, implementation and operational capabilities in freight forwarding, contract logistics, transport management and distribution management. Other partners include: DynaSys, Palletways, and Flanders Investment and Trade.
