3:00pm - 3:35pm : The benefits of a transportation planning and optimization solution for a shipper

Shippers must be able to anticipate their future deliveries as soon as they receive orders. Financial gains, time saved, respect of the customer promise,
carbon footprint... Among the projects of transport digitalization, the optimization of delivery routes can strongly support objectives, thanks to dynamic
and long-term planning. Return of experience on the retail, goods transport, catering, food processing, construction, carpentry, waste collection, energy
sectors... the constraints are numerous and specific and require a project approach adapted to each ambition and company culture. PTV Group has 40 years of experience in transport optimization and has more than 500 customers in France and 5000 in 22 countries.

4:45pm - 5:55pm : Decarbonation, a new dynamic for Responsible Purchasing

Transportation is the activity that contributes the most to France's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In 2019, it will account for 31% of French GHG emissions. Controlling CO2 emissions related to transport in the supply chain is therefore one of the key success factors for reducing its environmental impact.

Come and join us at this round table, co-hosted by CNA and EcoVadis, on the decarbonization of the supply chain.

Speakers : Jean-Charles CALLO, Président CNA PACA, Nicolas Dussert, Directeur Commercial Europe du Sud, EcoVadis
