Procurement Summit lands in Namibia
Namibia will host the Procurement, Supply Chain and Logistics Summit (NPSCLS) 2014 towards the end of March in Windhoek, following the successful hosting of previous summits by other southern African countries namely Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia.
The summit will be moderated by the Deputy Director of Logistics within the Department of Marketing and Logistics at the Polytechnic of Namibia, Professor Eugene A. Madejski. The annual conference gathers experts and representatives from industry, academia and government to openly exchange ideas, share latest research, development experiences and strategy forward to the supply chain, transport and logistics industry. In a press release, the organisers said the summit has been carefully designed to meet the needs of procurement executives, supply chain managers, logistics and fleet management personnel from mining companies, manufacturing enterprises, service providers, wholesalers, retailers, distributors, customs clearing agents, shipping agents and freight forwarding agents.
It was also highlighted that the programme will benefit Supply Chain, Logistics, and Materials managers and directors who wish to broaden and update their skills and knowledge. Also marketing, customer service and production managers and directors who are seeking supply chain integration or who need to understand the impact of supply chain decisions on their company’s performance. It was pointed out that “It is extremely beneficial for delegates from different functions in a company to attend this programme, to ensure consistent and supportive action in supply chain management and achieving overall organisational objectives.” The Namibia Procurement, Supply Chain and Logistics Summit 2014, is scheduled for 27 and 28 March at the Safari Court Hotel in Windhoek.
