Title:   Purchasing & Logistics – How Both Contribute to Supply Chain Excellence

Speaker: Daniel Nurmi McAuliffe, CTL, DLP, CLTD

Transportation (Logistics) and Purchasing (Procurement) are the two biggest “spends” within an organization’s supply chain adding up to 80%. One purchases hard goods and the other obtains services. While each has its own set of distinct operating rules, there are similarities that must be understood in order to maximize performance and avoid wasting money. It can be quite a balancing act. Both procurement and transportation have to work together in order to “keep your customer and keep them coming back for more “.


  1. Learn how Transportation & Purchasing collaborate together to achieve the best service at the fairest rate
  2. Understand how the interrelationship between each area affects your bottom line cost.
  3. Discuss practical suggestion and tactics that can help maximize profit and increase customer service.
