Graham Inglis FCILT, the Chief Executive Officer for DHL Supply Chain, is to deliver the prestigious CILT Logistics Lecture for 2009 titled Managing Supply Chains in Recessionary Times. The lecture will be given at the Cavendish Conference Centre, Duchess Mews, London W1, Tuesday, 22 September.
The last twelve months have seen massive changes in the world economy
volatile cost structures
lack of capital
major changes in demand
fragility of global supply lines
changing availability of labour
increased focus on multi-channel sales strategies
need for sustainable solutions.
Graham will consider how supply chain managers can operate in times of such uncertainty and drive down costs, whilst reducing supply chain risk, together with recreating supply chains with the necessary cost structures and agility to cope with future change. He will show that much can be delivered by using lean principles in order to focus on improving core processes. He suggests that now is the time to be thinking the unthinkable and to consider pursuing transformational responses to the current massive challenges.
In his role as CEO for DHL Supply Chain Graham Inglis is responsible for the UK & Ireland, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EEMEA) and for supply chains in 21 countries employing over 60,000 people, and for DHL’s global Service Logistics business.
Graham joined the former Exel Logistics in 1995 from the National Health Service and has held a number of international positions with the Group. He is qualified in marketing and procurement and has a masters degree from Cranfield University.
