Supply chain solutions provider SBS Worldwide is delighted to announce its appearance on Bloomberg International and the Fox Business Network on the award winning business show 21st Century Business.
The program will be aired on 27 October on Fox Business Network and on 13 November on CNBC in the US, and on 28 October on Bloomberg International in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
The show examines how supply chains can improve the performance of businesses seeking additional profit margin by engaging with management and by bringing supply chain to the board room through a consultative approach. It also explores how this approach can create and give businesses a competitive advantage within their marketplace.
SBS Worldwide Chairman Steve Walker, USA CEO Lars Kloch and North East USA Regional Vice President of Business Development Kelly Delle Fave all took part in the studio debate.
SBS Worldwide INC CEO Lars Kloch said: “It is rare for the international distribution of goods to be given the opportunity of a prime time TV slot. Businesses need the time savings and freight cost reduction that we offer to put them at an advantage over their competitors. We are delighted to have been offered this opportunity.”
The company’s supply chain experts answered a range of questions from 21st Century Business presenter Jackie Bales about the greatest challenges to moving stock direct to markets, creating distribution centre bypass models and how supply chain solution providers will adapt to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
The SBS Worldwide team also explained the company’s commitment to the Asian manufacturing powerbases, from India to China.
