Luxembourg Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LCL) last year´s eXplore conference “navigating the future of supply chains” was characterised by great insights from several industrial experts combined with an academic input of LCL together with its collaboration partner the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Transportation and Logistics.

This year’s conference will take place on March 12th 2019 and the organizer decided to put the focus on “Navigating the green supply chain” because supply chain management´s sustainability plays a key role in being successful and no company can afford to neglect environmental impacts. The main speakers will be Josué Velázquez Martinez, Director of the Sustainable Logistics Initiative of MIT CTL and the associate professors Anne Lange and Nils Löhndorf (LCL) and Annette Stube, Head of Group Sustainability at Maersk Group, who will provide the participants with the newest insights of sustainable logistics, green energy supply chains, supply chain resilience, incentives for greening the supply chain and many more.

However, in contrast to the last successful conferences in 2017 and 2018, this time the LCL put together a whole education week (from March 12th till 15th 2019) with 3 additional workshops in order to offer a wide range of education but also to provide the opportunity to discuss and also deepen the knowledge gained from the conference speeches.  The workshops will include:

  • Sustainable Supply Chains with Josué Velázquez Martinez, 13th of March
  • Blockchain and Digital Supply Chains with Frank Bolten (Chainsteps), 14th of March
  • Supply Chain Resilience and Mitigation with Associate Prof. Nils Löhndorf, 15th of March
