Theme: The Music of  the Supply Chain in the Delaware Valley   

A transportation oriented panel discussion on maritime, road (truck), and infrastructure in our area. Supply Chains are a little like Music. They run to a rhythm. You might call it a beat. They have a daily routine, & a yearly cycle that they run through; where the content changes, but the patterns and rhythms are very similar.  Within supply chain, each musician (function) makes their own individual contribution to the effort – but it’s the sum of the parts that are greater than the whole – when each adds value – that music or harmony is achieved. So should our supply chains be more like an orchestra or jazz or country music or ???.

Keynote Speakers:
