Watch it now! Logistics Manager Webinar: Overcoming fulfilment and distribution challenges in Covid-19 – Sponsored by Autostore Systems

You can find out exactly how Covid-19 has changed the warehouse, and what organisations are doing to survive and thrive, by watching the latest Logistics Manager webinar “Overcoming fulfilment and distribution challenges in Covid-19” – sponsored by Autostore Systems.

In the response to the Covid-19 pandemic new processes and procedures are required to keep employees healthy and safe – fundamentally altering tried and trusted patterns of fulfilment.

Furthermore, Covid-19 has also altered the way that goods are flowing through supply chains, placing strains on fulfilment operations as they deal with high volumes.

In order to be successful today, organisations have to adapt quickly to this new normal.

By viewing this webinar you will learn:

  • How one of Europe’s biggest convenience store retailers reacted to Covid-19.
  • How to eradicate inefficiencies and wasted space and time in the warehouse.
  • How to deliver the right product at the right time, despite the current challenges.
  • How to future-proof your warehousing environment.

This free-to-attend webinar is the second in a series of supply chain specials from Logistics Manager, looking at the hottest topics in the sector.

This webinar features exclusive presentations from our sponsor Autostore Systems as well as leading food retailer SPAR International, and will be hosted by Logistics Manager Editor Christopher Walton.
