West Shore Community College’s Humankind series will host “Out of Stock: Supply Chains 101” on Thursday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. on Zoom.
Since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, items have disappeared from store shelves and prices have increased. What is the supply chain, and why is it broken? Jason Brand and Anthony D’Ambrosio, both executives at the international firm Supply Chain Solutions, will explain how supply chains work on large and small levels.
“If you’ve been curious to understand what is going on with supply chain issues, these gentlemen are the experts,” said Dr. Matt Sanderson, chair of the humankind planning team. “They will define the supply chain and explain the major components involved in it, as well as discuss recent problems and the role of the pandemic in those problems. This will be a very informative session for anyone who wants to understand more about this issue.”
“While it has been a challenging decade for US businesses, I hope, through this talk, we can convey that there has never been a better time for innovation in our industry,” said Jason Brand, business development manager at Supply Chain Solutions. “The low-hanging fruit in our sector has never been so ripe, and we need fresh minds to come join us and rethink the world of international logistics and help change the way the world does business.”
The event is free and open to all. Join the Zoom discussion using the link bit.ly/humankindwinter2022.
