Asger S. B. Lauritsen

EVP & CPO at FLSmidth

Every year FLSmidth has 750,000 supplier deliveries and 250,000 customer deliveries. This adds up to 90 deliveries every hour of every day. Seen from one perspective, it is a very simple task – goods need to be moved from one place to another – but in reality, there is an almost endless amount of details that create additional complexity. When something like Covid-19 occurs, things can get even more tricky.

From the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was FLSmidth’s goal to maintain business as usual for our customers and we closely monitored our open orders and supply chain. With a global supply chain, we were always confident that any local interruptions to our suppliers would be minimised, even when the agility of some suppliers was put to the test.


Join this session to discuss the latest best practices on supply chain resilience and disruption and how it can be turned into long term competitive advantage.

08:00 – 08:40: Welcome and breakfast

08:45 – 09:45: Supply Chain disruption and resilience in a perspective of COVID-19 by Asger Lauritsen, CPO – Supply Chain & Manufacturing at FLSmidth

Asger will introduce the challenges – managing Supply Chain resilience during COVID-19 and his present views on the topic.

09:45 – 10:45: Group discussion:

  1. Post Pandemic and as a consequence of the recent supply chain disruptions how has your business adapted?
  2. How did technology support your organisation through the recent supply chain disruptions – was it an enabler or inhibitor?
  3. How have you built resilience into your supply chain to manage current disruptions (labour shortage, freight issues) and future (unknown) supply chain disruption?


10:45 – 11:00: Follow up on group discussion, wrap up and thank you
