On behalf of myself and our Supply Chain Matters team, I would like to extend our sincere best wishes for a joyous upcoming Holiday Season and happy and rewarding New Year. May you enjoy the warmth, peace and love of family and friends.

We share for your enjoyment, a holiday commentary from U.S. National Public Radio (NPR) that reports on what supply chain resources Santa Claus would need to deliver his holiday presents.

While we will be spending time with family and friends, Supply Chain Matters will be publishing live commentaries during the week from the Christmas holiday through New Year’s Day.  There are lots of supply chain developments underway including the threat of an U.S. East coast dock strike.  We will also complete our deep-dives into our various 2013 Predictions for Global Supply Chains.

Best Wishes to All.

Bob Ferrari
