Event details

The supply chain mapping project for the businesses having an interest in the Maritime sector in the wider Solent region has produced a map of opportunities to aim for and identified some needed developments to make success possible.

The total spend identified was £560 million for sales of £1.9 billion, in over 500 companies employing 19,000 people but not enough of the money stayed in the region and that is where the opportunities lie. There are real market opportunities to be aimed for in the region and we want to help make that happen.

This seminar will be led by the team that did the mapping and they will present and discuss the results of the project and promote discussions about what can be done next.

Part of this will be to discuss a particular programme of business focused Supply Chain Improvement workshops which will be run after the summer break. These are designed to help companies identify their emerging Supply Chain Strategies to target these business opportunities and to define and plan an implementation path in the months ahead.
