Echo to Highlight Big Data at 2019 CSCMP Edge Conference
I’m excited to announce Echo Global Logistics’ participation in the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals’ (CSCMP) 2019 Edge Conference in Anaheim, California September 15-18. This year, I’ll be joined by other leaders from Echo to discuss how we simplify transportation and analyze data for supply chain efficiency.
The annual event draws 3,000+ supply chain management professionals during the three-day period and features over thirty hours of educational content from industry leaders across the country. It’s a great opportunity to make connections with leaders and influencers from other companies and have meaningful conversations about critical developments in our industry.
As a Corporate Member of CSCMP, Echo gains valuable information through roundtables and learning opportunities throughout the year. Echo pursues excellence in the digital freight marketplace by working with our data scientists to develop cutting-edge solutions for our clients and partners using emerging technologies. Our reporting and tracking tools provide supply chain visibility to offer continuous improvement opportunities for clients.
At the conference, Echo will discuss how we leveraged the power of big data to solve shipyard and supply chain inefficiencies for Newell Brands, one of our clients and a global consumer products company that includes household names such as Rubbermaid, Yankee Candle, Sharpie, and more. Using examples from electronic logging device (ELD) data, we’ll share how we identified areas for improvement and provided supply chain recommendations based on strategic insights.
The presentation will provide takeaways on how companies can optimize their data to achieve similar benefits for their business. In addition, Echo will host an open house reception on Monday, September 16 in Southern California during the conference. Even if you’re not attending the conference, I encourage you to stop by the reception to introduce yourself, perhaps even bring a colleague, and meet key members of the Echo team. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Find out the details and register for the reception.
CSCMP offers a unique opportunity for Echo to share the insights we’ve gained as a top-rated third-party logistics partner and stay up to date on industry news and trends. I look forward to joining the CSCMP community and attending this premier event.
