2018 VIC/TAS Launch Event

To celebrate the New Year, the VIC/TAS Division of the SCLAA held our annual launch event on 6 February at the Aer Rooftop Bar in Melbourne’s CBD.

Melbourne’s weather shone through and the committee and members from over 30 different SC&L companies came together to celebrate the new year on the sunny rooftop bar.

Thought provoking discussions were had, from discussing the challenge of tackling the counterfeit wine industry to the integration of the sharing economy into logistics via proof of providence and advanced pallet technology. Whether at the beginning of their career or an industry expert, everyone walked away with a fresh perspective on a current issue, and of course, some great new connections in the world of supply chain and logistics. Looking forward to the next event!
