CILT Supply Chain Network

The Supply Chain Network was established as part of CILT's London Region activities in September 2004. It is a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. After over 100 events, as at September 2018 it's in a period of transition, but it looks as if we'll be having meetings in the Baker St area again in the fairly near future.

In the meantime, don't hesitate to get in touch with Kirsten Tisdale, who set up the group - just put 'Supply Chain Network' in the comments box on the contact form that this link takes you to, as well as completing your contact details. We're also always looking for sponsors - a link to your company website could be here!

Here's a list of companies that came along to our past three events (updated January 2018): 3T, AB Foods, Actualis Marketing, Allport, Arcadia, Aricia Limited, Arrow Electronics, Autologic Systems, BDP International, Bibby Distribution, Bullock Men's Grooming, C S Supply Chains, Cadence Management Consulting, CILT(UK), CIPS, Collect+, DAI, Debenhams, DGS Supply Chain, Essentra, Excello Law, Godiva Chocolate, Intellitrans, Invest Essex, IPPF, John Lewis Partnership, Kuehne & Nagel, Logistics Partners, L'Oreal, M&S, Makowski Associates, Marie Stopes, Marks & Spencer, Microsoft, Mobius, Newport Industries, ParcelSpace, Shell, Signature Flatbreads, South Essex College, Spedition Services, Tata Global Beverages, TRL, University of Bedford, UPS, Vekia, Witron, XPO and Yusen Logistics.
