ALC releases Summit program

  • Posted on Thursday 29th, June 2017.

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has announced the program for its 2017 Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit, to take place 5-6 September in Sydney.

The Summit will be held at ICC Sydney, and will feature policy discussions, workshops, and consultations.

A key focus at this year's Summit is the significant extension to CoR, due to commence operation in 2018, which extends the legal obligations and liabilities of executive officers and company directors.

The Summit will consider how supply chain safety will be covered under the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, announced by the Prime Minister last year.

"The Summit is expected to attract representatives from all parts of the supply chain, including customers, suppliers and logistics providers," said ALC Managing Director, Michael Kilgariff.

"The 2016 Summit brought together over 300 industry representatives to benchmark, share best practice, and identify gaps where improvements are needed."

The Summit is reportedly integral to ALC's commitment to raising awareness about Chain of Responsibility (CoR), which impacts on all parts of the supply chain, as well as advising industry participants on some practical steps they can take to ensure high levels of safety and compliance.
