You don’t have to be a skilled golfer to enjoy the fun and networking at this beautiful 18 hole course designed by Davis Love III. Whether you like a sporting challenge or just like to be with other supply chain colleagues, May 14th is a day you should plan to be away from the office – mark your calendars now!
    Events during the day will include:
    • Shotgun start among four person teams to play 18 holes (all groups of players tee off simultaneously from different holes)
    • $250 Closest to Pin
    • $250 Longest drive competition
    • $10,000 & Additional Equipment prizes for Hole-in-one on all par 3’s

    Join CSCMP's Atlanta Roundtable on December 17 for a discussion of transportation procurement, planning and tender execution from the perspective of shippers and carriers. Shippers are putting their freight out to bid in Q4 2015 and Q1 2016 at levels not seen in years. They are doing this to secure network capacity and also take advantage of what many see as unexpectedly favorable market conditions. The panelists will provide a major shipper and 3PL's view of current market conditions, recent sourcing results and the challenges of aligning "bid capacity" with actual shipment volumes across a dynamic network and market. After opening remarks by each panelist and a discussion of a few focus areas there will be ample time for audience Q&A and discussion.

    Please join us for what is always one of Atlanta CSCMP's best attended events. Join your fellow shippers, carriers and other supply chain professionals in holiday networking and what is always a robust discussion around the critical questions of carrier strategy, freight sourcing, forecasting and market conditions.
