The meet and greet of the Benelux and German CSCMP participants in Colgone November 16th was a big success. Close to 30 professionals gathered for a smart networking dinner at Päffgen Brewery & Inn, followed by a visit to UPS Air Hub Köln Bonn.
The event brought together Supply Chain experts from Benelux and Germany for networking at a one of the eldest traditional restaurants & breweries of Cologne – The Päffgen.
In preparation of the UPS visit, Dirk Masuhr (Economist and Consultant for 20 years, with vast experience in logistics and packaging) presented insights of an E-Commerce Fulfillment and Packaging study made by THIMM Consulting earlier this year. It proved to be a very interactive presentation, where many questions and comments were shared between the participants.
The visit of the UPS AIR HUB Köln Bonn operations in full motion was the practical part of this event and gave the opportunity to understand the complexity of managing peak demand of close to 200.000 packages per hour.

To preserve the right balance of attendees, the number of student tickets are limited. We will work on a first come first serve base. After registration we will sent you an invoice provided by the German or Benelux CSCMP. When you register we will need your name as it is on the ID/Passport document. We also need your address and cell number (needed for UPS registration).
As the UPS Hub is local at Köln-Bonn Airport we suggest to take the “S-Bahn” from Friesenplatz (140 m walking distance) to Cologne Airport. A train leaves basically every 20 – 25 minutes. Also backwards from the Airport (even after midnight) a train leaves every 20 – 25 minutes. The traveltime is 27 minutes.
Alternatively the Airport has enough parking places (in case participants prefer to go to the airport by car)
