Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 30, 2008
Logistics and supply chain experts from around the globe are gathering in Amsterdam for the Reverse Logistics Trade Show and Convention, 16-18 June.
The focus of the Reverse Logistics Trade Show at the Dorint Hotel Amsterdam Airport is to help European OEM and branded companies become aware of reverse logistics support on a global basis. This trade show is a rich opportunity for OEMs and branded companies to meet third party service providers and technology solution partners. A highlight of the conference is the subject of sustainability, particularly on WEEE and RoHS.
In answer to the growing need for a Green Solution to the issue of sustainability, ZSL will debut a preview of Recycle Accelerator, the globally interconnected technology solution. Recycle Accelerator enables collectors to connect easily and efficiently with recyclers. Manufacturers and government agencies benefit from audit and reporting functions. Vendors and component manufacturers have access for bidding on export of the raw materials in a unique solution that integrates all of the supply chain constituents.
John Mehrmann, Vice President of Business Development at ZSL, will present Using Technology to Enable Collaborative Independence. The supply chain is fragmented by diverse interdependent applications that are typically fabricated to address individual internal issues. The result is a multitude of numerous banks of information that are only partially tapped for business intelligence and actionable data. John will demonstrate how collaborative integration of independent systems can stimulate profitable business, customer loyalty, and cost avoidance.
Using Technology to Enable Collaborate Independence provides cost effective methods for retailers and manufacturers to reduce returns, and maximize the investment in clients, through better use of information from reverse logistics. Methods include 'The Surprise Inside', customer registration, PURLs, Technology Upgrades, asset recovery, parts reclamation, and sustainability solutions. For more on this subject, be sure to read the article entitled, Cost Avoidance, in the May / June issue of Reverse Logistics Magazine.
John Mehrmann is author of the internationally acclaimed and award winning book, The Trusted Advocate: Accelerate Success with Authenticity and Integrity. This book is the fundamental guide to achieve extraordinary sales and sustain loyal customers. The guiding principles of achieving success by empowering clients and partners to attain individual goals are clearly identified in the book, in the RL presentation, and in the debut of Recycle Accelerator by ZSL.
Mark Balinski, Manager of Business Development at ZSL, takes the stage as a panelist on the topic of Using Reverse Logistics to Enhance Customer Service and Competitive Performance. Mark joins Jonathon Spokes, Business Development EMEA at Sykes, on the panel moderated by William K. Pollock, President of Strategies for Growth.
