The Nautical Institute invites you to join them for a free webinar: 'Global Supply Chains - How does Shipping Fit? which is to take place this Thursday, 11 November between 08:30 - 09:30 (GMT).

At a time when shipping’s role in global supply chains is making daily news, this NI webinar will be considering how the delicate balance has been upset and why ships are stacking up in ports around the word.

Ships need to integrate with other transport modes (road, rail, air etc) and with other services such as legal, finance and risk management, but how does the entire system fit together?

Vivek Sood (known to many as ‘Mr Supply Chain’), will be presenting this webinar where he will share his considerable knowledge of supply chains, practical business strategies, disruptors and career paths for those in the maritime industry.

Sood is a renowned author and has worked on more than 400 global supply chain projects in some 84 countries, with clients ranging from fortune 500 companies to innovative green technology companies.

His work has added cumulative value in excess of $1 Billion, incorporating major transformations in supply chain infrastructure, investments, profitable growth through global supply chain realignment, and cost reduction.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
