The Institute of Logistics and Supply Chain Management (ILSCM) has opened in Johannesburg with the aim to partner with industry and to improve the general caliber of those pursuing careers in logistics and supply chain and related disciplines.
Despite gradual improvement since the summer of 2009 - the official end of the Great Recession - the U.S. unemployment rate remains unacceptably high. But don't tell that to companies in search of supply-chain talent.
The Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA), Canada's largest association for supply chain professionals, has officially launched. Representing nearly 8000 members working in all facets of the supply chain, SCMA is the country's principle source for education, training, professional development and networking in the field.
Ann Drake, CEO of DSC Logistics and one of the few female chief executives in the logistics industry, discusses the supply chain as a career path for women and the goals of AWESOME (Achieving Womens' Excellence in Supply Chain Operations, Management and Education), a new organization that she founded.
