During the IAA 2016 conference in Hannover, TIP Trailer Services organised a roundtable discussion called ‘THE FLEX CHALLENGE’ about trailer flexibility. ‘THE FLEX CHALLENGE’ was not just a ‘one-off’ topic, but the start of a series of roundtable discussions with experts from the field. Questions about ‘How to create more trailer flexibility’ and ‘How to cope with the increasing demands from consumers’ that force us all to re-think the way we work. Can we re-invent the supply chain?
So far, all stakeholders are clear on one thing; the supply chain must innovate if we want to stay in the game. What are the learnings so far and how can these help you to stay competitive? This conference was the first in a series to identify ‘THE FLEX CHALLENGE’ and to find solutions that work. The whitepaper unfortunately does not have ‘an easy fix’. We do have lots of ideas, proven methods and new business models to explore.
