Topic: “Pause, Think, Realign, AND Do it All Over Again Tomorrow…” Succeeding in Today’s Supply Chain Environment.
Logistics is said to be “Out of Sync” which is the title of the 2022 State of Logistics report issued by CSCMP, and conducted by Penske Logistics. It couldn’t be a more appropriate title on the current state of the nation’s supply chain. Given the constant state of flux we need to Stop – Breathe – Think – and then Do – and Do it Again – until Success is achieved. Mark’s speech will provide the details on how to do this in today’s challenging global environment.
