Conversations with Supply Chain Executives; Norbert Dentressangle Acquires Daher Freight; CEVA Partners with TOWER

Definitely take a look this week at the 8 short interviews we undertook with some top supply chain executives from the CPG, Hi-Tech and Industrial verticals. Lora Cecere has also provided two great blogs this week, which are well worth a read. 

Conference season is now also in full swing; we have just organized the 2nd Life-sciences Supply Chain Summit in Singapore which was a great success and today is the 7th North American Hi-Tech and Electronics Supply Chain Summit in San Jose. I will also be travelling to Denver in a couple of weeks to speak at the annual CSCMP conference, so let me know if you are also going to be there.
