CSCMP's COVID-19 Resources

Today's Supply Chain News
Exclusive to CSCMP members, CSCMP has been broadcasting weekly webinars with the supply chain industry's top experts to give information and insight on how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting the supply chain.

Whether you are facing COVID-19, trade wars, recessions, natural disasters, border issues, or some other as yet unidentified disruption, supply chains still need to roll on and if you don’t shift and adjust with the landscape, you will wither and someone else will fill the void. Now, more than ever, it’s important that our community collaborates and engages with one another to share updates, best practices, ask questions and learn from one another.

SCPro™ Level One In-Transition Program

While the fields of supply chain and logistics have thrived in some ways during the COVID-19 pandemic, CSCMP is aware that this is not the case for all of our fellow supply chain and logistics professionals.  The supply chain is no exception to the large amount layoffs and furloughs disrupting the lives of people all over the world.

CSCMP now offers an SCPro™ Level One In-Transition Program to help those that have either lost their job or are currently underemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  If accepted, participants will receive the SCPro™ Level One Certification Bundle for $150 USD as well as a complimentary 6-month CSCMP membership.  As supply chain and logistics professionals get back out on the job market, a CSCMP SCPro™ Certification will set you apart from other candidates.  A CSCMP membership will help you make those important connections via our over 6,000 member global network.

SCPro™ Level One is the only industry certification that covers the comprehensive supply chain, from end-to-end, and requires candidates to demonstrate their knowledge of the eight Cornerstones of Supply Chain Management via a multiple-choice exam.  Professionals with an SCPro™ Level One designation demonstrate a solid foundation of knowledge in all the functions of supply chain management.   Learn more about the SCPro™ Level One Certification .

Global supply chains power the world. From the medicines we need, to the cars we drive, to that strange present your uncle gave you for your birthday. All of these products start with raw materials processed through an often-complex global supply chain until they reach the consumer. Regardless of how brilliant the product design, engineering, and marketing, the consumer will be disappointed if the supply chain is not able to deliver that brilliant product in good condition when and where it is needed. Supply chain professionals are the conductors of this globally dispersed orchestra of trucks, planes, trains, ships, and facilities allowing firms to deliver on their promise to customers. However, unlike a symphony orchestra, the supply chain conductor must deliver consistent results while the orchestra is constantly in flux.

LeanCor’s Post COVID-19 Crisis Supply Chain White Paper & Podcast 


The post COVID-19 crisis supply chain must be designed as ONE SYSTEM and planned, practiced and executed by ONE TEAM.  Up until this month, a large part of our population believed that pandemics were a medical discussion and not a supply chain discussion. Now we know differently.  How will we think, plan, execute, and improve crisis supply chains moving forward?

In this new white paper , Robert Martichenko, CSCMP Distinguished Service Award Winner and CEO and Founder of LeanCor, explores some of the most critical and thought-provoking questions of our time as we prepare for the post COVID-19 crisis supply chain.  Download the white paper here[attached]; listen to the corresponding podcast here .
