Chinese Delegation tours European facilities in effort to boost supply chain efficiency

The People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) toured European facilities of leading food retailers, manufacturers, supply chain solution providers and industry groups in May to see how fresh and ambient supply chains are organised in Europe.

In 2016 – As part of its review of supply-chain development and efficiency opportunities, representatives of the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) toured European facilities of leading food retailers, manufacturers, supply chain solution providers and industry groups in May to see how fresh and ambient supply chains are organised in Europe. Among the European hosts and participants were: retailers ASDA, Carrefour, SPAR and Waitrose; manufacturers Nestlé, Coca-Cola, P&G and L’Oreal; and services providers CHEP, IFCO, DHL, IGD and the Lean Enterprise Institute. The desired outcome of the tour program was to learn from each other and further explore elements of the European supply chain that could be applied in the Chinese context in order to streamline the supply chain and lower logistics costs. Of particular focus were: dedicated loading bays and standardised pallets, container management systems and trucks.
