Past Event | Supply Chain Managers Webinar Discussion: Joint Event by French Chambers in Hong Kong and Singapore

Thank you to Gregoire Sauve, Supply Chain Director APAC at LVMH Perfumes & Cosmetics and Yvan Corno, Managing Director at Oqido for moderating an interactive webinar discussion. This session was co-organised by French Chamber in Hong Kong and The French Chamber of Commerce Singapore.

During this session, our co-moderators covered two topics - freight management and talents management - in the region with their peers from Hong Kong and Singapore.

Key Takeaways:

  • Long-term partnership is probably the best way to secure the price and save costs. Fuel surcharge impacts the costs as well.
  • Finding alternative means of transportation and shipment is key to resolve capacity issue.
  • Supply Chain needs more regularity and stability in the region. (ex: arrival of containers on time ; availability; large volumes…)
  • Finding suppliers closer is one way to reduce transportation costs
  • Relocating the talents may happen in one or two years for some companies in the region. Southern China, Singapore, and Dubai are among the top destinations.

This event is kindly sponsored by our series partner Bolloré Logistics.
