Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 12 noon - 2 pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Foster City

In partnership with the BioSupply Management Alliance (BSMA), the CSCMP San Francisco Roundtable invites you to attend an informative luncheon program featuring a keynote presentation by Sean Monahan, Partner, A.T. Kearney, discussing highlights and trends from the recently released 27th Annual CSCMP State of Logistics Report®. CSCMP collaborated with global strategic management consulting firm, A.T. Kearney, as the new author and researcher, with Penske Logistics continuing in its longstanding role as top supporter of the report.

The report includes: a focused narrative on the economic environment impacting logistics; insights from interviews with industry leaders, including shippers, carriers, and analysts; a spotlight on relevant trends; and a strategic point of view on the state of the industry.

The report reveals total U.S. business logistics costs rose to $1.48 trillion in 2015, a 2.6 percent increase from the previous year, which represents a considerable slowdown from previous years.

Following Sean's keynote he will moderate a panel discussion titled, "Move It, Don't Lose It!".

The panel will explore potential impacts of current event topics and the new world order on supply chains today and throughout the next decade. Considerable emphasis will be placed on topics such as Brexit and if/how these are impacting or enabling the establishment of logistics hubs, manufacturing centers, or potential HQ’s and even tax shelters. Other current topics demanding attention like Industry 4.0, the age of automation, and Government 4.0 especially as it relates to business stimulation initiatives for the economy and alternatively extraction of corporate taxes. These topics are presented not to deliver answers but to facilitate exchanges of ideas amongst the panel and the audience. Expect an informative exchange of experiences and expectations from practitioners, consultants both US and abroad. Come ready to participate!

Panelists are Franck Toussaint, Managing Director, Biolog Europe and Horacio Enriquez, Sr. Manager, Bio-Rad Laboratories.
