About the Sponsors:
The Logistics and Supply Chain Management Society is a professional body for Logistics practitioners who promote professional development of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and works to raise the profile and expertise through a range of activities.
The Logistics of Logistics is a blog written by Joe Lynch, a logistics provider based in Brighton, Michigan, and has a goal to demystify and explain logistics. Lynch shares on his blog ideas and processes used by his team to save money for clients over the past three years.
“I’ve always believed that the best way to get things done is to get the smart people involved, brainstorm some game-changing ideas and then execute,” said Lynch. Lynch is applying this same philosophy to the Supply Chain Brief website, connecting people and ideas.
