  • Our first-ever Port of Chicago Tour was informative and offered a very unique perspective on supply chain management.
    We learned about: the role that ports play in facilitating the movement of bulk goods from destinations both near and far;  port logistics and warehouse operations;   inland ports vs seaports; and  port-specific lexicons, e.g. free-trade-zones, supply chain optimization, and stevedores.
    CSCMP members and guests convened in the beautiful Harborside Golf Resort for industry presentations prior to departing for a guided bus tour.

  • Slam Dunk!
    Our event started with an exclusive access tour of the United Center, the stadium that is home to the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks. We got an insider’s view into the operations of the building – from the unloading docks and storage areas to the basketball court to the seats – focusing on the significant logistical coordination to maintain the building and provide seamless support during events. Scott Boyke, Director of Building Operations lead the tour and presentation followed by networking and refreshments in our reserved event space before we transitioned to the 200-section to watch Chicago Bulls take on the Denver Nuggets!

    We started with a short overview of 2017 industry trends based on the CSCMP State of Logistics Report by A.T.
