WAM Systems has announced that it is returning for a fifth consecutive year as host of Logichem US, now known as SCMchem.

The two-day conference gathers chemical supply-chain executives together to discuss opportunities for cost reductions, increased effectiveness and preparation for future growth.

Presentations and roundtable discussion will centre around: improve demand planning and forecasting accuracy in a volatile environment for planning efficiencies; re-balance your inventories and service levels to free up working capital; maintain large-scale process changes while dealing with day-to-day realities; optimise your global logistics and distribution network to increase supply-chain flexibility and decrease costs; do more with less; make the most of your available resources in times when resources are tight; position yourself for upturn growth; and sustain your business during downturn.

Other featured presentations include ‘Recession Rebuttal: Best Practices For Freeing Up Working Capital’, supported by a panel of executives from BASF, Cabot, Clariant, Dupont and Intertape.

Dr Haakan Jonsson, senior vice-president and head of supply-chain centre for Bayer Materialscience, will discuss the importance of downturn preparation and upswing capitalisation, according to the chemical industry’s economic cycles, in a presentation entitled ‘Charting A Comprehensive Course For Best-In-Class SCM’.

Also scheduled is a discussion on volatile demand, supply risk and bail-outs affecting chemical supply chains, led by Gary Miller, vice president of Global Supply Chain.
