    Atlanta Roundtable CSCMP is hosting our 4th annual Golf Tournament on Friday, May 9th, 2014 and we would like you to join us for fun, networking and a round of golf this spring. You don’t have to be a skilled golfer to enjoy the fun and networking at this beautiful 18 hole course designed by Tom Fazio. Whether you like a sporting challenge or just like to be with other supply chain colleagues, May 9th 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

    • Gift Certificate $ for 1st thru 4th place finishers for each player

    • Awards Reception with more prizes and giveaways

    You can register individually or as a group. Since there will be teams of four to play the course, individuals and groups of less than 4 will be paired before the event – this is a great way to meet people! Carts, lunch and drinks will be provided, along with a gift bag for each participant. Contest prizes will also be awarded and event sponsors will provide some cool give-away items!

    If you are looking forward to the spring, you should book your calendar now for a day of networking with colleagues, friendly competition on the golf course and a breath of fresh air. How often can you do all of this and help others who need it most? Proceeds from the event will benefit a designated charity and the CSCMP Atlanta Roundtable’s Scholarship fund.

    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.

    Shippers may be tempted to reduce transportation costs by negotiating across-the-board rate reductions. That could work in the short term, due to today's loose capacity environment. The market is changing rapidly, however, and within 18 months, those aggressive cost cutters may wish they had invested more in preserving relationships with their best for-hire carriers. You can have both. By bench marking your company's rate history against prevailing market rates on a lane-by-lane basis, you can reduce transportation spending in a way that supports strategic relationships and ensures access to capacity when transportation again becomes a seller's market. Our speakers are Greg Sikes, VP of Products, DAT Solutions and Ben Cubitt, SVP Consulting/Engineering, Transplace. Ben will present the results of the Transplace survey which identifies that carrier response to the ELD mandate varies by fleet size.

    SignupRegister

    Atlanta Roundtable CSCMP is hosting our 7th annual Golf Tournament on Monday, May 22nd, 2017 and we would like you to join us for fun, networking and a round of golf this spring. You don’t have to be a skilled golfer to enjoy the fun and networking at this beautiful 18 hole course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Whether you like a sporting challenge or just like to be with other supply chain colleagues, May 22nd is a day you should plan to be away from the office – mark your calendars now!

    Events during the day will include:

    • 9 AM Shotgun start among four person teams to play 18 holes (all groups of players tee off simultaneously from different holes)
    • Closest to Pin prize
    • Longest drive competition prize
    • Additional Equipment prizes for Hole-in-one on all par 3’s
    • Gift Certificate $ for members of each team finishing 1st thru 3rd place and last place
    • Food & Awards Reception with more prizes and giveaways

    You can register individually or as a group. Since there will be teams of four to play the course, individuals and groups of less than 4 will be paired before the event – this is a great way to meet people!  Carts, lunch and drinks will be provided, along with a gift bag for each participant. Contest prizes will also be awarded and event sponsor’s will provide some cool give-away items!

    If you are looking forward to the spring, you should book your calendar now for a day of networking with colleagues, friendly competition on the golf course and a breath of fresh air. How often can you do all of this and help others who need it most?  Proceeds from the event will benefit a designated charity and the CSCMP Atlanta Roundtable’s Scholarship fund.

    We anticipate this event selling out quickly, so please register early to reserve your spot. If you have questions or interested in being on the list of this year’s sponsors, please contact Dave Maddox, CSCMP Golf Tournament Chair, at david.maddox@southernfreight.com 404-479-5784.
