Session 4A: Technological Advances Impacting Global Supply Chains 

May 23rd, 2018 | 2:15PM | Bello Grand Hall

Join Shapiro’s very own Angela Czajkowski, as she will be a panelist in Session 4A: Technological Advances Impacting Global Supply Chains. The session will highlight tracking shipments, maritime security, e-commerce, and warehouse bots – these are all technologies that are changing the way global supply chains are operating. With security, efficiency and timely information at the forefront of shippers’ concerns, those involved in global supply chains are challenged to create and implement technologies that can address these needs while expediting the process. This session will feature various facets of the global supply chain and how they are dealing with these issues and some of the new technologies that are being employed.

Angela Czajkowski’s passion and creativity for international supply chain management propelled her through the ranks to Director of Supply Chain at Shapiro, a 103-year-old leader in logistics and regulatory Customs brokerage. Angela shines when it comes to tough rate negotiation, routing design, and the challenge of high volume, high complexity, multi-lane, multi-modal accounts. When she steps off the stage, Angela is known for her love of travel and theatre, but what charms us most is that she is an accordion aficionado with a fantastic fastball (yes, really).
