"In today's highly evolved supply chain environment, it is even more critical for companies to stay abreast of industry developments. Unfortunately, supply chain professionals are busier than ever and usually don't have the time to attend traditional seminars," stated John Croce, President and CEO of Abel-Womack Integrated Handling Solutions. "We have addressed this need by introducing a webinar series. This allows companies to secure pertinent information in a format that requires a minimal time investment.

"As an Abel-Womack customer, I am looking forward to these webinars.
