July 4th marks the celebration of Independence Day in the United States, a time for summer picnics, concerts and fireworks.  This year’s celebrations will be somewhat altered with Hurricane Arthur churning up the U.S. eastern seaboard and threatening to wash out certain celebrations.

In any case, we are all industrious, and once the storm passes there will be continued celebrations thru the weekend.

We extend to all of our U.S. based Supply Chain Matters readers a Happy and Safe 4th of July.

Supply Chain Matters will return with new commentaries early next week. In the meantime, take advantage of our vast library of industry specific and various other content.
