Year End Highlights The Christmas Party If you are reading this, we hope you enjoyed our Christmas Party! We celebrated the year at Crafty Squire Brewery in early December, where we also launched the Industry Collaboration Program and congratulated our graduating mentees! It was a great to see our supply chain and logistics community grow and network. We hope to see you at our events next year as there will be great opportunities to add value to our emerging industry. Cheers! Levi Del Fierro
