RLC Foundation & Unipart ‘Resilience in Supply Chains’ Event – 26 April 2023

On 26 April 2023 Unipart hosted a ‘Resilience in Supply Chains’ event at Unipart House, Oxford.  The event was well supported by the military and industry partners.  Simon Wheelton, Director Strategy and Business Development Aerospace and Defence, Unipart Logistics and Team Unipart showcased their diverse range of products and expertise by treating us to a visit to their Advanced Supply Chain Institute (ASCI); a multi-purpose learning and collaboration space where tomorrow’s supply chains are reimagined, enhanced and transformed.  Developing innovative ways to use digital technology and automation to transform businesses, increase resilience, reduce cost and lower environmental impact.

Our guest presenters were Adam Jones, Divisional Director of Sector Strategy and Business Development, Unipart Logistcs and Maj Gen Phil Prosser, Director Joint Supply Strategic Command.  Both presenters focused in on the resilience supply chain challenges faced by the commercial sector and within the military environment.

After the respective presentations and the ASCI tour their followed a lively Q & A session which further explored the many supply chain and sustainability challenges that we all face.  This was followed by a sumptuous lunch before those attending departed.

A big thank to Unipart for hosting one of our best events yet and to both Adam and Gen Phil our guest presenters for taking time out their respective busy day jobs to support the RLC Foundation.
