Hybrid supply chains to support an ever-changing consumer landscape
featuring New Era Cap

The global logistics industry changes almost daily, and for a company like New Era Cap, that relies heavily on its ability to get the right product to the right place at the right time – to all corners of the globe – the science must be sound. Just as the World Series is coming to a close and New Era springs into action, ITGO welcomes Josh Creasman, VP of Global Supply Chain to the stage, to shed light on how New Era, with its expansive reach and household name, keeps its customers’ needs fulfilled through a logistics system that is both responsive and forward-thinking. Join us for Josh’s in-depth insights into global logistics, and learn how WNY-based New Era delivers worldwide.

Following Josh’s presentation, join ITGO for a panel discussion on global logistics in 2018, what we have to look forward to, and the opportunities and challenges for the Buffalo Niagara to grow our logistics presence.

Plus, it’s your opportunity to learn about the Buffalo Niagara International Trade Gateway Organization, and the work it’s doing to create a globally-recognized center for logistics in the bi-national Buffalo Niagara region – and how your organization can benefit.
