Albert Einstein shocked the world when he came up with the idea that time runs completely differently for each entity in the universe. The pandemic provided us with another chance to experience the relativity of time. While it would seem to some that things that took place in February 2020 actually happened a month ago, others would say that it was five years ago.
The same goes for logistics. D+1 deliveries were considered fast before the pandemic. But following today’s example of e-commerce, customers want goods the same day, preferably within the hour. The second extreme is represented by containers from Asia – they used to arrive in three weeks, while today loading them alone can take that much time.
If the perception of time has changed for us, it has for our customers or suppliers as well. Today’s age requires a mental readjustment, a different view of our processes, the structure and return on investment, digitization or the way we do our work. In short, it is time for another significant, almost historical change. Are you ready?
First held in 2007, SLOVLOG is not only the oldest but also the largest congress for the logistics and transportation markets in Slovakia. The aim of the congress is to inform and inspire logistics professionals and to allow them the opportunity to learn about new trends and best practices in their industries. At the same time, the congress provides ample opportunities for the participants to make new business contacts while strengthening existing ones.
The 14th edition of SLOVLOG will include a full-day conference program including two specialized afternoon workshops: Retailog and Digilog, focused on logistics for the retail sector and FMCG sector and support for innovation in logistics. The accompanying program of the congress will include BizLOG (organized speed-dating meetings); SEELOG (visits to leading logistics platforms for a chance to see logistics in practice) and the Logistics Business Mixer, the ever-popular informal evening networking party.
