Supply Cab: Are You Still Smarter Than A Supply Chainer?

This evening’s program continues our three-year tradition of an easygoing, interactive quiz competition.  Mixed teams of student and practitioner attendees will earn points as they take a virtual taxi ride north in Manhattan, and:

-        Attempt to answer a variety of Supply Chain questions

-        Learn the correct answers, and

-        Understand why those answers are the right ones

Questions will be drawn from all aspects of the Supply Chain including Sourcing, Transportation, Logistics and Production, using a combination of certification practice questions and specially-created “Red Light Challenges”.  The team members finishing with the most points will be awarded prizes.  As always, this will be an evening of both fun and learning.
