Elemica Hosts Executive Luncheons With Leading Supply Chain Analyst Adrian Gonzalez

Is Your Logistics Visibility and Collaboration Strategy Ready for 2016 and Beyond?

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - Mar 29, 2016) - Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network for the process industries, announces that the company, along with Adrian Gonzalez, founder and president of Adelante SCM, is hosting a North American Executive Luncheon series for supply chain and logistics professionals. The series will focus on the current constraints of working capital, carrier asset and resource capacity, complex global supply chains, and talent shortages, and how technologies that enable visibility, collaboration and automation are real game changers in the supply chain world.

"There's been plenty of talk about supply chain visibility and collaboration over the years," said Adrian Gonzalez, President of Adelante SCM and Host of Talking Logistics. "Despite the talk, why haven't more companies 'walked the talk'? Why is visibility and collaboration more important than ever? How do you move up the maturity curve? These are just some of the questions I plan to explore and discuss with the attendees. I look forward to learning and networking with all of the Executive Luncheon attendees."

Elemica's Executive Luncheon attendees offer an exclusive opportunity to network with an elite group of senior logistics and supply chain leaders. Discussions will also center around how a Supply Chain Operating Network will help businesses benchmark performance against competitors and identify strategies to access high-quality data about a company's shipments, enabling them to better manage by exception (reduce labor), address problems more quickly (reduce premium freight spend), manage inventory more tightly (improve working capital) and delight customers (sell more).

"As supply chains extend globally, they become more complex, with the flow of supplies, finished goods, and information widely distributed, presenting significant challenges across the entire supply chain network," said Ed Rusch, VP Corporate Marketing of Elemica. "Businesses need to gain visibility across their end-to-end supply chains to collectively sense and properly respond to real-time market events, to optimize working capital for greater profitability, and to increase operational efficiencies and collaboration to meet customer delivery requirements. I'm delighted that Adrian will be facilitating our luncheons and presenting on these business critical topics."

Adrian Gonzalez is a trusted advisor and leading industry analyst with more than 17 years of research experience in transportation management, logistics outsourcing, global trade management, social media, and other supply chain and logistics topics. In addition, Adrian created Talking Logistics, an online weekly talk show and blog featuring Adrian interviewing Thought Leaders and Newsmakers in the supply chain and logistics industry.
