Global Logistics in Mining 2012 conference

Wow – just got back from the Global Logistics in Mining 2012 conference (London, UK). Fabulous conference, excellent people. Lots going on around the world. We had some interesting discussions about:

  • Projects all with unique and interesting challenges (e.g., in Africa, Central America, isolated areas in Russia)
  • Technology supporting logistics improvements (e.g., using RFID or automating on-site operations)
  • Challenges operating within developing countries (e.g., within Africa and Central America).

I had a blast and I met some great people. While there are many logistics challenges ahead in mining, the room was filled with some of the brightest minds I’ve met so I am confident all the challenges will be overcome, one way or another!

Thanks to the folk at Fleming Gulf for organizing this.
