Irish exporters to talk supply chains

[ April 7, 2017   //   ]

The Irish Exporters Association (IEA), Ulster Bank, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, Rhenus Logistics and Fleet Transport have launched the IEA Supply Chain Series 2017 in Dublin.

The series will consist of four IEA Supply Chain Large Seminars, four IEA Multimodal Working Group meetings and four IEA Exporters Working Group meetings around Ireland.

The IEA Supply Chain Large Seminars will each have an industry specific focus on LifeSciences, Food & Drink, ICT, Manufacturing, Energy and Engineering, and include updates to regulatory and legal changes, as well as offering best practices advice across the supply chain by experts.

The IEA Exporters Working Group, chaired by Patrick Daly, is aimed at corporate exporters and provides an open forum to focus on national and regional issues including trade, finance, energy and transport while addressing sector issues.

The IEA Multimodal Working Group (formerly known as IEA Railfreight Group) will be chaired by Howard Knott and will provide a platform to discuss the importance of multimodal partnering in the supply chain and associated opportunities and challenges. Maintaining Ireland’s position as a leading location to conduct supply chain and logistics activities is a key deliverable of this initiative. For full list of IEA Supply Chain Series events scheduled for 2017 see below.

Rhenus Logistics managing director, Declan Sinnott, stated: “The Irish Exporters Association Supply Chain programme of events in 2017 provides a real platform to share and exchange supply chain innovations and developments across a number of industries.”
