This article highlights the E-Logistics 2000 Conference which was held in London, England. Jeff Stanton emphasized in his opening message that electronic retailing has come of age, and that the next step is to look at how this can be developed in the integration of the supply chain. Over the next two days, a wide range of speakers, from consultants, practitioners, third-party logistic providers, academics and software development houses developed this theme. A number of common aspects emerged from the various presentations of which, nearly one-third related to Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI). Although such an approach might be considered rather less than the cutting-edge of logistics, much of the focus on VMI related to the electronic application of the process. Other speakers illustrated supply chain and business process improvements that had been achieved from straightforward management attention to such things as eliminating waste, improving forecasting and analysis of data.
