Above the Fold: Supply Chain Logistics News (October 18, 2019)

Greetings from Death Valley, CA. 

I’m here with my Logistics Leaders for T1D Cure teammates, where tomorrow we will cycle 102.4 miles in support of JDRF and their vision of creating a world without type 1 diabetes.

Thanks to the support of our Century Team Sponsors (BluJay Solutions, C.H. Robinson, and Descartes Systems Group), our Team Water Bottle Sponsor (enVista), and our friends and family, our team has raised $67,345 as of this morning! 

(It’s not too late to help us reach our $75K goal — you can still donate today!)

After breakfast and a safety meeting this morning, we will be doing a “tune up” ride to make sure our bikes (and bodies) are ready for the challenge tomorrow. And of course, we will be hydrating and fueling throughout the day.

I’ll share some photos and stories next week. In the meantime, here’s the supply chain and logistics news that caught my attention this week:

Since I’m short on time this morning, I’ll share my commentary next week.

Have a fun weekend!
