Description: The Monterey Bay International Trade Association (MBITA) (http://www.mbita.org) cordially invites you to a half-day seminar on Global eLogistics Management.

The purpose of this seminar is to highlight the important role that global logistics is playing when achieving corporate objectives.

Although supply chain logistics has become a strategic differentiator for many companies, most of this progress has been confined to the domestic marketplace, with limited application in the broader global arena. But the 21st century has ushered in forces of change. Penetrating international markets or finding new sources of supply are now crucial to company profitability and market expansion. Information technology, greatly enabled by web-based breakthroughs, now make regional and global management more effective.

The seminar will examine the environmental changes that drive global logistics and focus on some of the key providers of services, including web-based technology companies and third party eLogistics companies. Examples of how exporters and importers are using these external providers to lower costs, improve productivity and expand market share will be discussed. Finally the seminar will examine what your company should do to make sure its international logistics capability is cost-effectively providing the competitive advantage needed to compete in the new century.

This seminar will be led by William W. Goldsborough, President of Logistics Alliance Strategies. Mr. Goldsborough holds a Doctorate in international political economy and has been involved in the transportation, logistics, supply chain and trade arena for nearly 25 years. For the past 13 years he has consulted on projects with major providers, shippers and governments around the world. This includes work for the World Bank and various public ministries in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, Europe, Mexico and the U.S.
