Human resource management and implementation of advanced technology in logistics – indivisible functions


Slovenia has recently been characterized by solid economic growth, and has been facing modernization in production and logistics. Robots, multifunctional machines, CNC machines and other advanced technology have become increasingly common in production; the internal logistics on the other hand still remains unexploited opportunity in terms of increasing productivity and flow times reduction. How to embark on a project of internal logistics organization? What more can we do to improve our productivity? How are the new technologies used in practice?

Significant steps have also been taken in the field of Entry/Exit logistics. Modern technologies in logistics, we could recently only speak of, are already operating and have impacted strongly our working lives. Drones, an »omni channels«, 3D prints and other advanced technologies have changed our lives as it was predicted only few years ago. As we speak the greatest potential holds the “Blockchain technology”. How do modern technologies affect business practices and processes in logistics? Where do their key advantages lie? How to implement them?

The technology is of great importance and is currently easy accessible. The greatest challenge we are facing at this state is properly trained human resources. How to manage human resources in logistics? What are the companies’ needs in terms of recruiting new staff? Do faculties respond to those needs and, if so, how?

You will find the answers to these questions and many other issues at our 6th International congress »Supply Chain Management in Science and Practice 2018«, in Portorož.

In addition to professional lectures on the above named issues this year again we will encourage making new acquaintances and provide opportunities for cooperation. This year we will also enjoy the company of our friends from ACS, Automotive Cluster of Slovenia and South East European Associations of Freight Forwarders and Logistics Operators (SEEFF), have a chance to build further on successful cooperation and have a glimpse into digitalisation in automotive industries and logistics. Amongst others we will present the first pilot case of electronic CMR document.

It is our mission to invite speakers whose presentations will provide practical solutions. We are constantly in search of the best practices and of top managers and professionals who are willing to illustrate them to us. And this will also be the case this year as we have prepared over 20 lectures on best practices, presented to you by top professionals and managers both from Slovenia and abroad.

We welcome you to attend the 6th International congress »Supply Chain Management in Science and Practice 2018«, and we are looking forward to seeing you in Portorož.

Igor Žula,
President of Slovenian Logistic Association

”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.”

This strengthening and fostering the development of logistics in Slovenia are to a great extent a result of active and hard-working individuals’ efforts.

"The Business Logistics Congress has become an established and internationally recognized event in the region, intertwining different logistical practices with the academic knowledge. I believe that participation at the Congress is a great opportunity for the transfer of good practices, domestic as well as international, and for establishing cooperation between different actors along the supply chain. I am positive that the participants may, based on the exchange of different experiences in the field of logistics, develop helpful suggestions for solving everyday problems in logistics."

"The Business Logistics Congress is an important international event, every year informing the economy and logistics companies on the most current logistics and other related topics. Carefully selected top experts deliver professional lectures and relate them to examples of good practices, which is the highest added value of the Congress. Participation in the Congress is not important only from this perspective, but also because of socializing and finding opportunities for business cooperation."

"Such events that gather many experts in one place, both from the economic as well as educational institutions, are always an opportunity to learn about new developments. For me, this is a great opportunity to escape from everyday worries and to set the operational innovation free. If during all the talks and meetings one experiences an eruption of at least a single idea that can be put into practice in our workplaces, then the return on the invested time is instant."

”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.”
Leon Korošec

”I attended the congress of logistics for the first time in 2014 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.”
