The latest insights in steel logistics

In the final session on day 1, Wibo Feijen, CEO of SLE will present the latest perspective on the supply chain management. He will outline some of the major trends affecting the industry. And, based on decades of experience, he will explain how best to tackle some of the critical challenges facing the sector. Whether it’s freight, logistics, stockholding or digitalization that concerns you, Wibo will provide you with practical best practices and valuable tips on how to optimize your performance.


Practical solutions to supply chain challenges

The global and European steel industries are working hard to adjust to the new era of actual and potential US tariffs. In addition, possible mergers and changing trade flows are putting increasing pressure on operations and margins. It is, therefore, now more important than ever to maximize efficiency and create added value across the supply chain. With more than 20 years’ experience in the steel industry, Wibo Feijen is better placed than most to assess the impact of changing requirements. In his presentation, he will offer accessible, creative and realistic solutions to the transport, handling and logistics challenges in the steel supply chain.
