ASCM Expands on its Supply Chain Foundation


Last week marked the official launch of the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM), designed to join the pantheon of industry leaders in the global marketplace.As the largest nonprofit association for supply chain, ASCM seeks to become an unbiased partner, connecting companies around the world to the newest insights on all aspects of supply chain within one source.Built on the foundation of APICS, ASCM’s primary focus is to drive industry innovation with new products, services and partnerships that enable companies to further optimize their supply chains, secure their competitive advantage and positively impact their bottom lines.“Businesses are starting to see the incredible advantage that can be gained through strategic supply chain management and leadership,” declares ASCM CEO Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE. “This is evidenced by supply chain professionals moving out of their silos and into the C- suite. Just as businesses are tearing down the walls between supply chain functions, so too should supply chain associations.”By creating ASCM, adds Eshkenazi, they are acknowledging this pivotal shift in our industry – not only through individual learning and development – but with larger corporate transformation in mind as well.SCMR applauds you.
