The Supply Chain Matters Quarterly Newsletter is a reader supplement to this blog.  The newsletter provides for a broader analysis of our daily and weekly commentaries, with an emphasis on this past quarters events and their implications for global supply chain business process and information technology needs going forward.

The Q1-2012 newsletter was distributed today, so please check your email inbox to access your and read your copy. Perhaps the most telling aspect of how busy supply chain management professionals are these days was the vast number of “out-of-office” automatic replies we received with this morning’s distribution.
