  • 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!

  • Sold out event! What an interesting story, right from the source, founder and CEO, Arsen Avakian. The fascinating presentation was followed by a Sampling of carefully blended teas of Argo Tea.  Argo's Values: CommuniTea, DiversiTea, ChariTea, QualiTea, SustainabiliTea, CreativiTea -

  • Today we celebrated our revived WERC-CSCMP partnership in Chicago and got together to network between supply chain and warehousing professionals. The event was held at the unique and elegant venue of Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurants in Arlington Heights, IL. Dan Beard, Director of Distribution of Cooper's Hawk and President of WERC Chicago delivered a very interesting brief presentation highlighting Cooper’s Hawk’s rapid growth, new winery, and unique distribution and logistics network.

  • Our Holiday Networking event was a hit!
    We started with a short overview of 2017 industry trends based on the CSCMP State of Logistics Report by A.T. Kearney and followed it up by cheerful holiday networking at the high-end award-winning restaurant Chicago Prime Steakhouse in Schamburg. Guests walked away with valuable insight, new connections they made through networking as well as a printed copy of the SOL Report. Check out the 10 Key Take-aways document below!
    We hope to see all our members and guests at our stellar events in 2018! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
