Supply Chain Series

Maintaining Ireland’s position as a leading location to conduct supply chain and logistics activities is a key deliverable of this initiative.

The initiative launched in 2017 focus on import and export challenges for manufacturers and service providers; offer solutions and practical support from logistics, trade finance experts and exporting companies; provide information around third country shipping and associated documentation as well as maximising opportunities with our air, road, sea and rail services.

The Supply Chain Series 2019 will be launched in association with Rhenus Logistics Ltd., Rhenus Logistics, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, and media partner Fleet Transport.

In light of potential changes that Brexit will present and increasing uncertainty for Irish exporters in relation to trading internationally, the IEA sees an opportunity to continue to enhance its offering to its members, provide practical solutions as well as innovative thinking to overcome barriers in the supply chain as well as supporting members to win more international business opportunities. Connecting members locally and providing a platform for discussing local issues will also be strongly focused on and feed into IEA policy, through the formation of new working groups and member representation.

The IEA Supply Chain Series 2019 will consist of:

  • 4 IEA Supply Chain Seminars: 4 large seminars will take place in Dublin, Dundalk; Cork & Limerick with case studies from local exporters, experts in industry standards, regulatory and compliance, as well as best practice advice across the supply chain by experts. Each seminar will incorporate critical breakout sessions on trade issues.
  • 4 IEA Exporters Roundtables: this is an invitation only meeting for manufacturers to address on some of the larger issues coming out of the seminars and webinars, as well as discussing local issues. They will include but are not limited to national competitiveness, transport & infrastructure, access to talent & skills, Europe – all of which will be discussed in the context of the Supply Chain and used to feed into IEA Policy, training, consultancy services and member representation.
  • 4 IEA Multimodal Working Groups (formerly known as IEA Railfreight Group): Chaired by Howard Knott, these meetings will provide a platform to discuss the importance of multimodal partnering in the supply chain and associated opportunities and challenges.
  • 6 Supply Chain Webinars: These interactive online seminars will look at specific supply chain topics and include guest speakers on: AEO, Trade Finance, Revenue Recognition, Invoice Discounting, Cashflow/Working Capital, Customs Awareness, Union’s Customs Code, Revenue, GDPR, Procurement, Digital Supply Chain & Ireland as a location, Supply Chain Strategy feeding into Business Strategy, Sustainability, Global Supply Chains, Warehousing and Brexit updates.

“Every business, whether an exporter or service provider, an SME or corporate, will have a supply chain. The aim of this initiative is to provide a platform for companies to connect, learn how to manage and protect their business from risks around currency fluctuations, cashflow and working capital management, getting product from the point of origin to the customer, maximising sustainability and ensuring compliance. The IEA is delighted to be working with sponsors Rhenus Logistics, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, and media partner Fleet Transport again. This is the second year we are collaborating to offer our members and stakeholders up-to-date, informative and specific information through our relationships with Government and State Agencies. Connecting members locally and providing a platform for discussing local issues will also be strongly focused on and feed into IEA policy, training courses, consultancy and member representation.” Simon McKeever, Chief Executive, Irish Exporters Association
