His 20-plus years in consumer goods supply chain management includes experience at Clorox Co. as well as at contract packaging and logistics services companies. Attendees of this session will learn how to define kit assembly as a lean approach to packaging, gain an understanding of the cost benefits of proper kitting and recognize where and how to unlock production efficiencies and gain speed-to-market benefits through the creation of kit packaging.
  • The Evolution of Contract Packaging within the Customer Supply Chain: Eric Wilhelm, CEO of Coregistics, will deliver this presentation on Oct. 31. He will explain the trend of “late-state differentiation” of product, which has
