This webinar series will focus on the problems created when companies operate within a silo mentality…each department focusing and optimizing their own silo rather than working together to improve the entire supply chain. The topic plays off recommendations from the Perfect Storm panelists regarding the importance of becoming a Strategic Shipper and looking across the supply chain to improve practices and processes in order to reduce cost.
This main event of each webinar in this series is complimentary and available to anyone who would like to register.
The deep-dive discussion that follows each main event, the “follow-up”, is limited to CSCMP and NASSTRAC members. It is also limited in terms of the total number of participants who can register to participate. These follow up sessions will allow attendees the opportunity to speak directly with panelists, ask questions and offer observations on the best way to implement programs to break through the silos.
