ECCT Supply Chain committee
Friday, 21 April 2017
Effective from 19 April, the ECCT’s Customs & Logistics committee has been renamed the Supply Chain committee. The decision to change the name was made by members of the committee for the following reasons: 1) Supply chain management
is the accepted name, within most multi-national businesses, for the operational business functions which include freight, customs and logistics; 2) By changing the name the committee hopes to be seen to be more relevant, gain greater acceptance and attract
more support from a greater number of ECCT member companies and 3) By adopting the new name they aim to expand the scope of the committee’s activities to include other related functions, such as procurement, quality management, sourcing, reverse logistics,
service logistics and contract manufacturing, among others.
