ALAN is an industry-wide organization that exists to provide supply chain assistance to disaster relief organizations (and other non-profits).

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.

#SupplyChainGeek Story

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.
