The world of logistics is constantly changing and evolving!
How do you manage next-day or even same-day delivery of goods purchased on-line? What is needed to put Sustainability front and centre of your logistics operations in order to reduce a company’s carbon footprint? These are just two examples of challenges covered by Henk Folmer in presentations and masterclasses.
Guest lecturer at Universities and Business Schools
As a guest lecturer, Henk leads students through the dynamic world of logistics, supply chain management, warehousing and distribution facilities, sustainability and e-commerce. He brings his insights, experience and skills to facilitate students to think through the implications of logistics trends and supply chain disruptions on business.
Presentations for policy makers and urban planners
Policy makers and urban planners can also benefit from Henk’s insights: How do you integrate logistics into densely populated metropolitan areas? What are the considerations for municipalities and regions? How do you weigh the interests of residents, consumers and businesses? Urban and last mile logistics are increasing rapidly as a result of the growth in e-commerce, forcing local authorities, communities and businesses to collaborate so that breakthrough strategies can be developed and implemented. Awareness of these complex—yet interesting—issues are at the forefront of Henk’s presentations.
Henk shares more than 30 years of experience in the world of global transportation and logistics, infrastructure, industrial real estate development and investment; most recently as Senior Vice President at Prologis. He has been instrumental in finding the best located distribution centres equipped with state-of-the-art features in design and functionality, sustainability, well-being, technology and innovation for large global corporations.
