Top Logistics Locations; K+N Results; Healthcare Value Chain

This is always one of the busiest weeks of the year for me, leading up to the second most important supply chain event in North America, the CSCMP Conference in Denver. I will be speaking on the Annual 3PL Study with Penske, Korn/Ferry, Capgemini and John Langley from Penn State on Monday morning, so I hope to see some of you there. In case you were wondering, the #1 most important supply chain event in that region is the eyefortransport3PL Summit & CSCO Forum (11-13 June, Chicago) :0).

If you missed the press release that Prologis released a few months ago about the Logistics Location Study we worked on together, I have included our own release and link to the study in the news this week. It really does make interesting reading for the European market, and many of the topics will be discussed at the 11th European 3PL Summit and CSCO Forum in Amsterdam next month on November 12-14 – it is an event which is worth trying to attend in terms of seniority of the attendees and speakers, just take a look at the website for full information and attendee list.
