Orlando was extra magical last week for supply chain professionals attending CSCMP EDGE!
EDGE is The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals’ annual conference & exhibition, and it is the premier event of the year for supply chain professionals! If you have not attended a CSCMP EDGE Conference yet, you are missing out on an incredible opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s brightest!
From opening keynotes to the closing session, there was no shortage of inspiration, new insights, valuable networking opportunities, and actionable ideas at EDGE. It also provided a unique opportunity to view demonstrations, equipment, systems, and technologies that provide cutting-edge solutions to common supply chain challenges.
In attendance this year from The Shippers Group were (L-R) Rob Doyle, Maggie Harvey, Robin Siekerman, and Charles Thompson.
Along with being members in attendance, a few of our associates had additional visibility and involvement at the conference. Robin Siekerman, TSG VP of Marketing & Customer Solutions, who serves as the President for the CSCMP Atlanta roundtable, participated in the Roundtable Leadership portion of the conference. Additionally, Rob Doyle, TSG President, is a member of the EDGE Conference Committee and was the Warehousing Track Chair for this year’s conference. The warehousing track featured four compelling sessions and panels that focused on:
- Adapting to Transformative Labor Trends
- Expert Insights of the Commercial-Industrial Real-Estate Markets
- A Case Study on How an Industry Leader Overcame Operational Challenges through a Supply Chain Digital Transformation Journey
- Embracing Integrated Robotics with Humans and other Standard Automation to Drive Efficiency and Success
CSCMP EDGE is known as the must-attend event of the year and always lives up to the hype! The Shippers Group had a great time connecting and reuniting with our supply chain community and discovering the latest innovations, new strategies, and best practices that are shaping the industry. With the knowledge and insights we gained, we are feeling inspired and empowered as we strategize 2024 and beyond! Thank you CSCMP for another great conference!
