Leaf team members attended the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) EDGE 2022 conference last week in Nashville. This annual conference brings together supply chain professionals, academics, and students for four days of discussion on supply chain challenges and the latest innovations.
We were proud to sponsor this year’s Young Professionals Video Contest & Scholarship. CSCMP young professional and student members submitted videos across several topics that included: unlocking the global supply chain, sustainability, and technology in supply chain. There were impressive submissions by many young professionals, showing that the future of our industry is in good hands. Leaf CEO Anshu Prasad presented the winner at the Young Professionals reception – congratulations to Paige Ruhlman, Supply Chain Program Manager at Cisco, for her submission about unlocking the global supply chain.
We also took part in the EDGE session series to present “How Ball Took a Portfolio Approach to Freight and Increased Service”. Leaf’s Head of Strategic Operations & Account Management, Margie Hamlin, and Leaf Advisor Mark Shaughnessey presented about how Ball, a major aluminum packaging and aerospace company, found success in working with Leaf to dramatically increase their performance while also realizing savings. At the same time, Ball was able to achieve meaningful scope 3 carbon emissions reductions associated with their transportation.
Leaf participated in the Supply Chain Exchange Exhibition, where we had a chance to meet with conference attendees to share the work we’re doing to coordinate the transportation industry, and to learn about other advancements in supply chain. We enjoyed the opportunity to connect with so many forward-thinking professionals in our industry, and look forward to CSCMP EDGE 2023!
