  • Webinar 21 July 2020: The NZ Supply Chain Response to Covid-19

How has the NZ Supply Chain coped during lockdown and what does the future hold, now that we’re at Level 1?

Like many other countries, Covid-19 hit New Zealand hard – socially and economically. Although we as a nation, fared better than many others, our supply chain was and still is, subject to the same stresses and strains experienced globally and it will likely remain that way for the foreseeable future.

This webinar featured the people at the frontline who kept the New Zealand Supply Chain for Daily Life, running:

  • Kris Lancaster – Supply Chain Development Manager, Foodstuffs South Island
  • Dallas Vince – Executive General Manager, TIL Freight
  • Suhail Sequeira – Supply Chain Solution Architect, Ports of Auckland 

Kris, Dallas and Suhail described how they and their organisations kept New Zealand going during lockdown and what they believe are the challenges and issues the NZ Supply Chain will face over the next 6-12 months.

  • Webinar 24 June 2020: Industry 4.0

What does Industry 4.0 mean for NZ Logistics and Distribution in a Covid World?
Logistics operations have for a long time, made use of data to improve performance. While this is of course not new, what is new, is the vast increase in volume and quality of data that can be captured, the rapidly reducing cost of capturing and processing that data and the interconnections the data has with physical systems, especially process automation.
Industry 4.0 is the 4th industrial revolution – the application of cyber-physical systems. 
This webinar featured Richard Mahoney from Studio Logistic who talked about 4.0 technologies and how they can be combined to make transport and logistics operations better and business more resilient in the face of sudden changes.
Topics included:

  • How IoT sensors and Vision Systems can directly measure the performance of operations
  • How data from outside the DC, realtime location systems, predictive analytics, ‘digital twins’ and automation, are used to improve performance, bottom line and ensure business can cope with change – planned and unplanned.
