Nestle's Logistics Thoughts; Is the Gartner Top 25 Supply Chain Still Relevant; Logistics Revenues surpass pre-recession levels
As promised last week I have written a short article on the Supply Chain Canada event I spoke at last week, including a summary of a presentation I heard from the Head of Logistics of Nestle, some interesting stats and thoughts were shared.
We also have this week a thought-provoking piece from Lora Cecere on the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25, and why it no longer works for her. You can actually hear from and meet both Lora and a representative from Gartner at the 3PL Summit and CSCO Forum in Chicago next month (June 18-20), less than 50 places are still available so make sure you register quickly.
Lastly, the deadline for voting in the Customer’s Choice 3PL Awards was today, but we have extended it into next week so make sure you vote here
