Industry Insights: Supply Chains and Freight
May 31 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEST
As part of the Global Victoria Trade Alliance, the Australian British Chamber of Commerce is delivering a series of events to build knowledge, connections and enable pathways for Victorian businesses to engage in, and export to the UK market.
The global pandemic has ensured that all of us are now more acutely aware of supply chains than ever before. The disruption and chaos has created a number of factors that are impacting supply chains in and out of Australia. Some of those factors include lengthy lockdowns; staff shortages due to infection rates; impact of global container shortages; reduced air traffic increasing the premium for airfreight; and the reduction in shipping services have sent prices sky rocketing for freight, creating a challenging landscape for business involved in the import and exports of goods which will ultimately slow economic growth.
In partnership with Global Victoria, join us to hear from a panel of industry experts:
Greg Carroll, Head of Commercial Solutions, International Services, Australia Post,
Shaun Mooney, Executive General Manager Commercial, Port of Melbourne,
Gary Hester, Head of Trade and Working Capital – Victoria, NAB and
Arnold Jorge, Chief Executive Officer, Export Council of Australia
