New Dates for Fall Workshops on "Best Practices in Distribution Center Design, Operations and Management" Announced
Hands-On Events in Philadelphia and Atlanta will be Led by Logistics Guru Ken Miesemer, Sponsored by Supply Chain Digest
Dayton, OH – Supply Chain Digest announced this week Fall, 2008 dates for its popular Workshop focused on improving distribution center management and peformance. Ken Miesemer, Senior Consultant at St. Onge and former Director of Distribution and International Logistics for Hershey Foods, will lead these two events on “Best Practices in Distribution Center Design, Operations and Management” in Philadelphia October 21-22, and Atlanta October 28-29, 2008.
These hands-on, practical training sessions are a lot more than just outstanding education. They will offer a dynamic, interactive experience that will challenge the attendees’ thinking and enable them to interact with their professional peers and the instructor throughout the events. The course and materials include a number of tools and templates for use in distribution analysis and decision-making that are worth the cost of the course by themselves – and which attendees can put to work right away in their operations. There is nothing else quite like these Workshops available in the logistics and distribution industry today.
Miesemer, author of the acclaimed book Start-Up of a World Class DC, says that: “These Workshops use outstanding materials that have been extremely well received by logistic professionals, and deliver concepts and insight that aren’t just theory but which have been proven in real-world distribution environments.”
Says Dan Gilmore, Supply Chain Digest’s Editor-in-Chief, “Response from attendees at our Spring 2008 sessions was extremely positive. I am confident attendees to these Workshops will find this a unique and highly valuable experience that will enable them to better meet the tremendous challenges of today’s logistics and distribution environment – and enhance their careers.”
“Best Practices in Distribution Center Design, Operations and Management” will be held October 21-28 at the Penn State Great Valley Conference Center in Malvern, PA just outside of Philadelphia, and in Atlanta at the Georgia Tech Conference Center October 28-29, 2008. Hotel accommodations are available for those that need them.
