Project SCALE’s third and final UK conference showcases the tools it has developed to help food and drink companies improve the economic, social and environmental performance of their supply chain.

The conference: How to Secure a Step Change in Agri-Food Logistics”, will be held at Cranfield University on April 16th 2015 and run in partnership with The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT)  and Food Storage & Drinks Federation (FSDF). All tools will be openly accessible to delegates and free to use.

ProjectScaleLogoOn the day, companies will learn more about how to overcome many of the common issues encountered on the journey to sustainability and delegates will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the tools and frameworks which include:

  • The Exploratory Sustainability Workshop: a supply chain mapping model to generate ideas and identify areas where value can be added.
  • C4S, a collaboration tool: including a workshop to help companies identify collaboration partners.
  • The Supply Chain Risk tool: focusing on the risks specific to the food industry.
  • A session on Defining Sustainability, Agreeing Metrics and Measurement
  • The Collaborative Planning Tool: an aid to decision-making which allows for triple bottom line criteria to be weighted and tailored to individual circumstances and multiple scenarios to be created and compared.
  • The ICT Visibility Tool: to help implement solutions and deliver visibility and transparency on triple bottom line improvements.

INTERREGLogoStep Change in Agri-Food Logistics Ecosystems (Project SCALE ) is a transnational Project  which has engaged with food and drink businesses across North-West Europe for the last three years. Partly funded by INTERREG IVB North-West Europe, the five partners of the Project – Cranfield University, DHL, EFFP, Wageningen University and Université d’Artois – have combined significant industry expertise and strong academic rigour with excellent effect.

Denyse Julien from Cranfield University explains: “There are three key pillars to improving sustainability: Profit, People and Planet. SCALE has developed an impressive range of tools and analysis to help a business achieve fundamental improvement in their supply chain competitiveness. This event will be of value to any food or drink company interested in improving the sustainability of their logistics. It will help those companies at the beginning of their journey as well as those who may already have started to make improvements in their Triple Bottom Line”.

With the Project nearing its conclusion, representatives from the five Project Partners will also share the key lessons learned by the Project in the last three years and the day also allows for debate and networking with other businesses.

Registration is free.
