If you were to honor the memory of every soldier buried in Arlington National Cemetery with his or her own parade, you’d have to host more than 1,100 parades per day for the entire calendar year. And while each of those parades would no doubt be as appreciated and celebrated as the Memorial Day parades and events that will take place this weekend, perhaps you will consider honoring the fallen by supporting those who served beside them…and today live civilian lives with less than they need and deserve.

The proliferation of technology to support supply chain management has created a high-stakes card game of decision-making for shippers as they design their IT road maps. Is it time to hold, fold or double down? Many shippers need to ask themselves these tough questions:
- Do we in-source the activity or outsource to a 3PL?
- Should we run hosted applications or be cloud-based?
- Is a subscription model more effective than licensing software?
Inevitably, supply chain executives must start by marrying the supply chain back-of-the-house systems to their organization’s front-of-the-house ERPs. This often means creating connectivity among ERP systems that house customer orders and supplier POs, transportation management systems and warehouse management systems that group, optimize and process it all.
At next week’sWarehousing Education and Research Council’s (WERC) annual conference, Andy Moses and Shaun Hodges will co-present a session about warehousing. Penske Logistics is a Champion sponsor.

This picturesque scene through the nation’s heartland was part of a Marine’s family’s military relocation. The trip was was made possible with help from Penske’s military call center.
In many cases, America’s military families function as teams. While service members are deployed to protect our freedoms at home or abroad, their spouses serve in a different way.
