Have you dedicated your career to learning and improving the supply chain? Are you fascinated with solving complex problems? Do you have a deep drive and curiosity to learn about new innovations and technologies, especially ones that influence efficiency and accuracy? Are you personally invested in advancing the supply chain and logistics industries? Do you love barcodes?
If you’re proud of the work you do, join us as a #SupplyChainGeek Ambassador. Celebrate however you like, although we have a few ideas to help get you started:
As a #SupplyChainGeek Ambassador, think about how you can spread the love of the supply chain in your company. Maybe host a virtual conversation to talk about innovation and trends or to catch up with colleagues.
Share your story with us over email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by using the #SupplyChainGeek hashtag for a special thank you gift.
We know you’re having video calls more than ever (so are we). Have a little fun with them by using some of our free wallpapers for Microsoft Teams or Zoom. You can also use them as your desktop or phone background images.
Here are resources on how to change your backdrops in Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
Supply chain professionals are essential today and every day. How can you get creative to say thank you or to show the love within your company or community? We would love to see your ideas, so please share pictures and posts using #SupplyChainGeekDay or email (email@example.com) them directly.
As a #SupplyChainGeek Ambassador, one of the easiest ways to spread the love is to participate on social media. How can you spotlight a colleague’s great work? Maybe you have a case study to share? Or maybe you want to highlight an innovation that’s making a difference in your company?
Use the hashtag #SupplyChainGeekDay and help to show the world what being a #SupplyChainGeek is all about.
Make a Donation to ALAN
When disaster strikes, few things are more important than good logistics. It is the key differentiator between the wanting to deliver support and making it happen in reality. ALAN is an industry-wide organization that exists to provide supply chain assistance to disaster relief organizations (and other non-profits).
Make a Donation to Food Banks Canada
Our food banks often suffer from shortages and other struggles and now with several interruptions in the supply chain, it is imperative to provide this help now. Food Banks Canada provides national leadership to relieve hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow in collaboration with the food bank network in Canada.

Five years ago, at Promat, we unleashed #SupplyChainGeek to the world. It was our way of saying—we love what we do and we are glad to be part of this supply chain community. To our delight, people joined us in raising their hands as #SupplyChainGeeks and the moniker has stuck ever since.
At Barcoding, we celebrate efficiency, accuracy, and connectivity with the solutions we provide and the partnerships we keep. The #SupplyChainGeeks in our world vary greatly: they cover all types of industries, all types of roles, all types of tenure, and stretch from coast to coast in the US and Canada. That said, one thing ties us all together; our willingness to “geek out” to solve the challenges before us.
This year, on Friday, June 26 (the barcode’s birthday!) we will claim a day for #SupplyChainGeeks everywhere. To celebrate the human beings who make the supply chain run and the essential employees stepping up during even the most disrupted of times.
