    Let’s Fasten our Seatbelts and take a Leap of Faith!

    Every customer makes a “Leap of Faith”, when they place an order with a company. “Look before you Leap” is a cautionary action taken by most consumers as they do not want to “Fasten their Seatbelts” and be taken for a ride by a company’s supply chain management team.

    It is widely agreed that many of today’s supply chains are benefiting from the results of innovation and transformation.  The beneficiaries include customers and consumers of all types, and trading partners in ecosystems that facilitate the creation of value through meaningful and effective collaboration and alignment. 

    This presentation will explore some of the reasons that help to explain the rise in strategic importance of supply chain capabilities, and will highlight new technologies and approaches that will continue the rise to success.  Both shippers and third-party service providers can now “Leap over the Hurdles” that caused customers to fasten their belts in anticipation of poor service. To further guarantee this success developing future supply chain talent is a high priority for our educational institutions and participating organizations in today’s supply chains. Let’s Fasten our Seatbelts and take a Leap of Faith!

    TOPIC:  Supply Chain Management – Fasten Your Seat Belts                      

    SPEAKER: Dr. C. John Langley,  Clinical professor, Supply Chain information systems and director of development, Center for Supply Chain Research at Smeal College of Business at The Pennsylvania State University       

    Dr. Langley is a Clinical professor, Supply Chain Information Systems and Director of Development, Center for Supply Chain Research® at Smeal College of Business at The Pennsylvania State University. He has also worked as SCL Professor of Supply Chain Management at Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute and was the Dove Distinguished Professor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management at the University of Tennessee. In addition he is an entrepreneur being the owner of a professional Ice hockey team called the Knoxville Ice Bears located in Knoxville, TN.

    For the 24th consecutive year, he has led the Annual Third Party Logistics Study that is released annually at the CSCMP national conference. Since 1996, this study has documented and measured the transformation of the third-party logistics industry. The 2019 study showed that “83% of shippers and 98% of 3PLs were in accord that 3PL usage had translated into improving customer services “to the ultimate customers.” It shows that shippers and their 3PL providers are increasingly moving toward meaningful partnerships and working together to accomplish their supply chain goals. The demand for 3PL services is expected to about double the pace of GDP growth at 5.2 percent between 2018 and 2022.
