The Impact of Energy Prices on Logistics & the Global Supply Chain
David Jacoby, CTL, CEP, CFPIM, CSCP, CIRM, C.P.M., President, Boston Strategies Int'l

With oil and gas prices hovering around $40/barrel, logistics professionals should be asking lots of questions, such as:
     • Should manufacturers and distributors further centralize their distribution networks, and drop conversions to alternative fuel fleets?
     • What is the state of alternative fuel vehicles in corporate fleets?
     • How long will energy prices stay low?
     • Is it even ethical to consume more oil and gas, when we could be stocking goods on the shelves instead?
     • Will we see-saw with every cycle in energy prices, or should we pick a logistics strategy, and stick with it?

This session will engage you in a memorable debate about important strategic, environmental, and economic tradeoffs in logistics today. You will walk away with facts, frameworks, and benchmarks, that could change your company's logistics strategy. You will benefit from:
     • Performance of short-term vs. long-term logistics and operational strategies
     • Facts, figures, and insights about the environmental impacts of logistics networks
     • Energy price analysis and forecast
     • Framework for establishing, implementing, and updating a logistics strategy and operations plan
