Supply Chain Virtual Conference Has Back to Basics Theme

By Francis J. Quinn, Editorial Director
August 06, 2010

Our reader surveys tell us that everyone likes articles and information that stress the basics of supply chain management. Not surprisingly, it’s certainly true for individuals just entering the field or transferring to the supply chain space from some other part of the organization. More surprising, however, is that even the most seasoned supply chain executives like to revisit the basics—procurement, order fulfillment, transportation management, warehousing, and so on—from time to time.

That’s why Supply Chain Management Review and our sister publication Logistics Management put together a “Virtual Conference” on the subject. It’s called Supply Chain Fundamentals: The Building Blocks of Success. This event comes complete with keynotes, workshop sessions, and exhibitor booths that you can attend in the comfort of your home or office or airport lounge—or any other place you have access to a computer.
The Virtual Conference is on demand and you can access it any time of day or night.  Simply go the registration page at http://www.scmr.com/fundamentals  (And., don’t worry, there’s no charge.)

The conference features four educational workshops that focus on key components of the supply chain process—namely, sourcing/procurement, transportation, warehousing, and reverse logistics.  Each session includes an expert panel that explains the basic principles of executing these core processes and benefits to be realized for doing so effectively.

The SCMR/LM Virtual Conference also features a keynote presentation by logistics pioneer Ken Ackerman as well as a number of booths you can visit on the show floor.  It’s well worth the virtual trip.
