“Technology, in all its forms, is critical to enabling supply chain visibility and improving efficiencies,” said Slangerup. “But, while technology is a great enabler, it can’t replace the benefits of working with experienced supply chain professionals who understand the complexities and urgency of managing an agile supply chain.”
Closing the NRF week on Jan. 16, Slangerup will co-host a Supply Chain & Logistics Workshop with Stein Mart SVP Rick Schart and The Home Depot VP Colby Chiles titled “Navigating the transportation tightrope.” The session will be held at 1:30 PM ET at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square in the Westside Ballroom.
Before joining American Global Logistics in 2017, Slangerup served as CEO of the Port of Long Beach, a primary U.S. gateway moving more than $180 billion a year in trans-Pacific trade. Earlier, he served as President of FedEx Canada.
