"THE FUTURE IS IN COOPERATION"

The fourth international logistics congress Supply Chain Management in Science and Practice 2016 will present international and Slovenian good practices in cooperation among the recipients of logistic services; we will speak of logistic challenges brought upon suppliers by the limitation in the supply of cities; great attention will be paid to regulations in transport, where - due to more and more limitations and requirements in Slovenian as well as European legislation - it is really difficult to find proper ways to provide efficiency.

In addition to Slovenian experts and managers we will host the representatives of significant European institutions and companies, who will present guidelines for the future and the possibilities of cooperation.

This year again, we will present one of interesting countries, encouraging new connections and opening opportunities for collaboration.

We are committed to lectures based on the presentation of concrete solutions because we are fully aware that only these bring additional value. We strive to invite exclusively top managers and experts who will present excellent cases of good practice. And this congress will be no exception.

We invite you to join us, we will meet already in April - in Portorož!

Igor Žula,
President of Slovenian Logistic Association

In a transport company, a driver represents the contact with customers, and this contact should be good because it reflects a whole company. Company success depends on driver’s qualification and satisfaction. This is why in BRCE company we pay close attention to drivers’ qualifications and we provide trainings throughout their employment period. The process begins as soon as we search for the best candidate - a driver who meets our standards for guaranteed effectiveness of services. In the beginning we offer theoretical education and practical training. And even after the initial period, when the driver starts to work independently, he benefits from permanent support of our HR department, his mentor and traffic policemen, especially with challenges he cannot solve himself. We will go in more detail about the challenges and practice of such training during the lecture in Portorož.

On the basis of our own experiences in teaching drivers in Prigo company we will present a case where you will see how - by means of motivation and training for drivers - we achieve up to 5 % higher average speed, reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%, increase the safety in traffic, prolong service intervals in vehicles and lifespan of assets, and reduce environmental impact.

Maximo Martinez Avila

PROCTER & GAMBLE

Currently P&G has been able to shift 20% of the transportationvolume on intermodal lanes in Europe under the TINA program, where P&G hasrelied on its own scale and existing connections only. This approach hasreached its limits and is insufficient to reach the objective to have a modalshift of at least 50% of the transportation volume. With NINA we want todeliver a breakthrough in intermodality through networked and multidimensionalcollaboration. Through multidimensional collaboration between shippers,terminals, logistics service providers and trustees, the necessary scale isbuilt to get to the 50% modal shift target. In NINA, the intermodal terminalswill play the role of a trusted business developer, bundling the transportationvolume in their area of influence (hinterland). Logistics service providerswill jointly develop long term intermodal solutions which do not exist todaywithin the consortium of shippers and terminals. The trustee will ensure thatconfidentiality and antitrust regulations are adhered to and that the gainsthat are generated through the multidimensional collaboration are distributedin a fair and sustainable way.

PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR

With its activities the Slovenian Logistic Association wants to encourage logistics and its activities and in this way contribute to the competitiveness of organizations and Slovenian economy as a whole. This strengthening and fostering the development of logistics in Slovenia are to a great extent a result of active and hard-working individuals’ efforts. It is therefore appropriate to recognise these individuals and their achievements, and to reward them and present them to a wider public.

This is the purpose of the PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR AWARD. It is an honourable award for the most successful logistic provider in Slovenia that achieved, with their knowledge and efforts, extraordinary results in logistics in the previous year. In 2016, the 11th competition will be launched - for the Professional of the Year 2015 Award.

LampretAles.png

”For years, a logistic congress is one of the pillars of professional gatherings which I attend in Slovenia as well as internationally. Every year, the congress addresses the most current logistic topics and the impact of logistics on other business functions in organizations. Carefully chosen topics include theoretical as well as practical knowledge. This is a place where experiences and ideas can be exchanged with acknowledged Slovenian and international experts from academia and economy.
I want to emphasize the aspect of socializing and networking, too, where in a relaxed atmosphere new business opportunities are born and long-term business connections and friendly relations are built.”
Aleš Lampret,
Director of logistics at Kemofarmacija, d. d. & Professional of the year 2014

”I attended the congress of logistics for the first time last year in Laško. It was a very positive surprise due to the width and quality of the topics which directly or indirectly influence the efficiency of logistic services. I recommend this event to everyone who wants an in-depth insight into how logistics is interwoven with other business functions and how this enhances the success of an organization and the satisfaction of its business partners.”
Leon Korošec,
Member of the Management board at Elan, d.o.o.


”Every organization pays the most intention to the manufacturing and quality of their products. But since the market is becoming increasingly more global, we also focus more and more on the ways to the customer to be as short, fast and safe as possible. By doing this, we obtain additional time for production and lower transport costs.”
Marjan Trobiš, CEO, Boxmark Leather d.o.o.
