The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has announced that its 2017 Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit will take place 5–6 September at ICC Sydney.
With the Government continuing to develop the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, this year’s Summit will consider how the Strategy can be used to improve safety outcomes in the freight logistics industry.
Another key focus at the Summit will be the significant extension to Chain of Responsibility, set to come into force in 2018, that will extend the legal obligations and liabilities of executive officers and company directors.
The 2016 Summit brought together over 300 industry representatives to benchmark, share best practice and identify gaps where improvements are needed. The 2017 Summit will again attract representatives from all parts of the supply chain, including customers, suppliers and logistics providers.
“The Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit is a valuable opportunity to raise awareness of changes to CoR obligations and advise industry on improving safety and compliance levels,” said Michael Kilgariff, Managing Director, ALC. “The event will serve as a platform for policy discussions, workshops and consultations and we look forward to an active and engaging series of discussions.”
