PDM: Dinner meeting speaker for November 9, 2017

Topic: Supply Chain Management from a Distributors Perspective.

An overview of what today’s distributor is doing to manage their resources while providing service and delivery: Ranking your Inventory, Distribution Center, Stocking Level, Obsolete Inventory, Replenishment, Transportation and Proximity to Customers. These are all key factors that Allied Supply has been using to improve the organization while enabling them to best serve and respond to their customers’ requirements

Speaker: Tom Homan, President/CEO, Allied Supply, Dayton Ohio
