C.H. Robinson’s Bob Biesterfeld, Uber Freight’s Lior Ron to Highlight New Townhall Series at CSCMP EDGE 2019
Thank you Brian Straight for this FreightWaves article discussing the CSCMP's new Townhall Series at EDGE.
Discussions around the “Uberization of freight” and changing last-mile demands have permeated the freight industries in recent years. But what do these terms really mean, and how are they altering the supply chain?
This is a major theme of the first-ever Townhall Series at the upcoming Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) EDGE 2019 conference. The conference, being held this year from September 15-18 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, offers leading-edge content and cutting-edge supply chain solutions. The Townhall Series has been designed to give attendees an opportunity to listen to, and ask questions of leading voices in the industry.
“For almost 60 years, CSCMP has brought thought leaders together to not only discuss advancing the discipline, but what we can do by working together across the supply chain. This series is intended to create an opportunity for our community to hear from those who are taking action to not only deliver customer expectations, but to do it using the tools, technology, and of course the people to make it happen every day,” explained Rick Blasgen, CSCMP president and CEO.
The CSCMP EDGE 2019 conference is presented by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals. You can register for this year’s conference on the conference website and find more information on the Townhall Series and other panels, discussions and educational sessions at www.cscmpedge.org.

Drones, Storage Lockers, Autonomous Vehicles and National Security New Technologies May Be Creating Unintended Risk. Supply Chain Managers Need to Get Involved to Shape Policy
Thank you to CSCMP member, Robert Lieb for contributing. Previously published in Supply Chain Management Review and Modern Materials Handling.
While Donald Trump would lead you to believe the most serious threat to our national security is our southern border, it’s not. That threat arises from several increasingly important supply chain developments, our short national memory and a lack of enlightened public policy making. These developments include the continued focus on the development and operation of larger drones for possible commercial use, the expansion of e-commerce delivery lockers in public places by Amazon and other e-commerce companies, and the ongoing development of autonomous cars and trucks. The potential threat to national security posed by these new technologies, coupled with a lack of related intelligent public policy development, is increasingly putting the public at risk in terms of potential terrorist attacks.
This risk is compounded by the fact that the two federal agencies involved in developing policies to protect the public from such threats, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), seem either unaware of these risks or are unable to process that information and develop related security policies.
Navigating today’s workforce and retaining talent is critical to the success of any supply chain operation. Please join CSCMP and local supply chain leaders to hear from Brian Devine (SVP) from EmployBridge. Brian will discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with attracting and retaining talent such as the growing skills gap and how companies can take action to help close it, and addressing the real skill needs of workers versus the widely-discussed needs. Brian will share the results of an extensive workforce survey to determine the scope and substance of course offerings available.
