17th Logistics CIO & Truck IT Forum

21/04/2015 - 22/04/2015, Austin, Texas, USA

The Logistics CIO Forum, in its 17th year, is the only event that tackles technology issues from the point of view of CIOs and VPs working at leading logistics companies. Each year, a niche group of senior-level executives come together for in-depth, poinpointed peer discussion that can't be found anywhere else in North America.

Women In Logistics Panel Video; Q&A With Jabil; Georgia Logistics Facts & Figures

One of the most prominent highlights from eft’s recent 3PL Summit in Chicago was the ‘Women in Logistics’ panel. Featuring senior women executives from DB Schenker, Morai Logistics, Transplace USG Corporation & ALOM and moderated by Michelle Carroll of Carrollco Marketing, it hosted some of the most passionate and personal discussions of the event. The whole session was recorded and eft has divided it into bite sized chunks to give you a glimpse into the world of women in logistics.

eft also managed to catch up with Fred Hartung – VP of Supply Chain Solutions & Logistics at Jabil at the Hi-Tech & Electronics Supply Chain Summit in May, and ask him a few questions about the future of big data. He explains how ‘most companies don’t know how to get started’ when it comes to implementing big data analytics to enhance their supply chains, but how ‘with big data it’s easier to make tenfold improvement than 10% improvement’.

Finally, as it does every month, eft has compiled some of the more interesting statistics from Georgia Logistics’ monthly industry analysis - you can see those figures from June 2014 here.
