Leading supply chain expert to present on post pandemic resilience at Logistics UK conference


James Wroath, the CEO of Wincanton, the leading supply chain business which employs over 20,000 people, has been confirmed as a speaker at Logistics UK’s first Supply Chain Resilience conference, taking place on 30 March 2022 at the America Square Conference Centre in London. James will be presenting on how business leaders can protect their operations against present challenges and future shocks as the economy emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

James Wroath comments: “The importance of supply chains to the success of the UK has never been more apparent than it is now. As we look forward to a period of economic recovery and renewal in 2022, building further supply chain resilience is essential for British businesses to succeed, and for the public sector to deliver world-class services. During the session, I will share my principles for developing long-term resilience, using the pillars of innovation, talent, sustainability, collaboration, and visibility.”

To be chaired by Phil Roe, Chief Customer Officer at DHL Supply Chain and incoming President of Logistics UK, and featuring a range of expert speakers, Supply Chain Resilience is a new, free to attend, invitation-only conference. The event will arm senior business leaders with the insight they need to navigate the current challenging logistics environment, protect their operations against global and national supply chain pressures, and maximise the opportunities of advancing technologies and government assistance programmes. The event is sponsored by Quincus.

David Wells, Chief Executive at Logistics UK, comments: “Wincanton’s relentless focus on supply chain discipline is what makes James Wroath ideally placed to lead this panel discussion on resilience. With just over one month to go until the conference, I urge all business leaders working within supply chains to apply for their place now – express your interest in coming along via our webpage or to your Logistics UK account manager.”
