On behalf of myself and Supply Chain Matters, I would like to extend sincere best wishes for a joyous Holiday Season and happy and Happy Holiday Wreathrewarding New Year.

As was been our tradition, we share a 2012 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. It’s a great recording to share with children and prospective students of supply chain management.

Supply Chain Matters will be here, publishing live commentaries during the week from the Christmas holiday through New Years day. Check in from time to time as you enjoy the holidays with family and friends.

Readers can anticipate our year-end commentaries regarding the final results of the 2014 holiday buying surge and Omni-channel commerce as well as other year-end milestones.  And, if you can, take the time to review and reflect on our previously published 2015 Predictions for Industry and Global Supply Chains.

Best Wishes to All.

Bob Ferrari, Founder and Executive Editor
