ProShip is hosting Association for Supply Chain Management’s upcoming breakfast roundtable event
As the world opens back up, in-person events are filling up calendars all over the world. After spending time at home on virtual calls and meetings and no business travel over the past 2 years, many professionals have gained some appreciation for what an in-person event can bring to the table. With opportunities to make new connections and reconnect with associates, in-person events offer a beat on the pulse of the industry and can thread learning and even training into a sometimes-sterile online experience.
This is not to mention the volatility that is surrounding the supply chain – emphasized by the countdown to the upcoming peak season. Time is one thing you can’t get more of, and the longer that shippers wait to see what’s coming, the less likely that they will be prepared for what is to come. The experts are suggesting that you should crowdsource shipping advice to beef up your preparation strategy.
Nate Skiver, a Parcel + e-commerce delivery consultant at LPF Spend Management, says, “Enlist help, engage others. Whether it’s your peer network or third-party consultants: engage others who offer additional insight and expertise, find out what other shippers are doing, gain market insight, and use this information to provide focus to your carrier diversification strategy.”
The ASCM Supply Chain Event
In the spirit of gathering assistance for the upcoming peak season, ProShip is excited to welcome supply chain professionals near and far to a unique educational, networking opportunity at the ProShip offices. This event will be an early AM roundtable discussion guided by the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) granting attendees the chance to discuss and learn from each other, sharing valuable insights and gaining perspective from peers.

The topic will center around “Building Packaging Sustainability in Shipping and Stocking Material”. Joining the event will be the founders of Box Latch Products, a reusable alternative to tape, staples, and bands that have traditionally been used to close cardboard boxes, headquartered in Pewaukee, WI. With a mission of changing the way that the world closes and reuses boxes, Box Latch is constantly moving the needle closer to understanding that reusing, not recycling, is an effective long-term solution for corrugated cardboard waste management.
