The Twelve Days of a Supply Chain Christmas

The holiday season is often a stressful time for most supply chains. Retail sales reach their peak, companies stretch to reach their yearly goals, and many companies prepare for Chinese New Year, which looms just around the corner.

Here’s a fun twist on a classic Carol. I’ve jumped to the last verse, but if you want to gather round your team and sing it, I’m sure you can figure out the other versus.

12 Days of Supply Chain Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my Supply Chain gave to me:

12-month rolling forecasts

11 product launches

10 bills of lading

9 new vendor contracts

8 inbound shipments

7 excel spreadsheets

6-sigma black belts

5S audit passed!

4 routing guides

3PL deliveries

2 forklift drivers

And a product that fills customers with glee!

To all of you that help keep the supply chains moving, we wish you a very Merry Christmas from Supply Chain Cowboy.
