    Sigma Healthcare Automated DC Virtual Tour

    Date: Wednesday, August 4, 2021

    Time: 11:00-11:45 am AEST

    See how automation is driving a healthy competitive advantage for Sigma

    When planning its new Brisbane and Perth DCs, Sigma Healthcare made the decision to adopt an innovative approach to picking operations, automating both facilities to eliminate the restrictions of manual handling, and future-proof its processes.

    With the integration of an advanced automated Goods-To-Person (GTP) picking system, Dematic helped Sigma achieve its highest operational efficiency and accuracy rates, as well as improve its service and delivery levels to meet customer needs.

    Join Dematic and Sigma for a virtual tour of Sigma’s automated DC in Brisbane. Dematic’s Senior Regional Director of Sales & Solutions Development, Pas Tomasiello, will be joined by Paul Brown, National Operations Manager, Logistics for Sigma, and they will talk through a 360° video tour of the facility in action, and provide a closer look at the technologies and subsystems that are proving to be a prescription for success!

    Building Supply Chain Resilience During
    the COVID-19 Pandemic:
    Time to Fight New Wars with New Strategies

    While we recognise that building supply chain resilience takes time, most business leaders are curious about how and why some companies adapt well to the devastating effects of supply chain disruptions whereas others do not. This discussion provides some insights into this conundrum.

    Wednesday, 11 August 2021
    5.30pm to 7.30pm
    Edith Cowan University Joondalup, Room: JO 32.101 (Lecture Theatre)

    The complexity of the COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated different approaches to supply chain resilience from those used to overcome other disruptions. Traditional strategies have proven inadequately flexible and adaptable to overcome low-frequency high impact (LFHI) disruptions such as the current pandemic.

    In this presentation, Brian K Chikwava, from an academic standpoint and Alister Miligan from an operational perspective provide examples of such approaches and how they operate in practice.

    Alister Milligan started his professional life as a chef. Over 30 years ago he moved into Transport and Logistic roles working for global companies such as TNT, Telstra, IKEA and ARB.
    He is currently State Operations Manager for ARB Corporation. For the last five years he has been working closely with sales and manufacturing and other major stakeholders to predict and satisfy, as efficiently as possible, the needs of a diverse customer base. He has also overseen and been instrumental in moving in 2020 West Australian warehouse operations from an outdated, undersized DC to a purpose-built new facility.
    While the physical logistic side of warehousing is very important, Alister is dedicated to improving and maintaining staff morale; crucial in uncertain times such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.  Alister believes that transparency of decision making is a key to success in maintaining staff motivation.
    Brian K Chikwava has more than 20 years of experience in International Trade, Supply Chain Management, and Logistics. He is currently a PhD researcher at a top Australian university, where his research focuses on Resilience-Enhancing Strategies for the Australian Retail Sector. The project entails investigating effective mitigation strategies to eliminate or reduce the effects of supply chain disruptions, particularly considering the recent outbreak of COVID 19. Prior to his current research role, Brian served as a trusted advisor on supply chain operations in South Africa, Zimbabwe, the UK, and the Middle East.
    Professionally, he is a qualified Chartered MCIPS (UK); MCILTA (Australia) and an active Committee member of the SCLAA

    Due to the COVID restrictions in Victoria, the date of this event has been changed. It is planned to hold this Networking event towards the end of August. As soon as a date has been confirmed, registrants, VIC/TAS members and our VIC/TAS industry contacts will be advised.

    For administration purposes, a provisional date of 26 August has been selected for this event.

    In light of the current lockdowns in both Greater Sydney and Victoria, and the uncertainties surrounding the relaxing of restrictions and travel zones, we have made the necessary decision to postpone MEGATRANS2021. 

    After tightened restrictions came into place in Sydney and Melbourne over the weekend, we believe this is the best way forward for the event, to deliver the best experience for sponsors, exhibitors and attendees. 

    The new dates for MEGATRANS will be 16-18 February 2022. We believe that by this time, Australia's vaccination program will have advanced to a stage where ongoing lockdowns and travel restrictions are limited, and events can safely take place without disruption.

    All tickets for the 2021 event will carry forward to the new dates.
