Each week, we look to write and share the best, most-up-date content on supply chain orchestration, logistics innovation and industry news. To this goal, here are the 5 articles that we liked the most from the past week to start your work week off right. I'd also suggest you read the wrap-ups from All Things Supply Chain, Talking Logistics and Logistics Viewpoints.

We also have an upcoming webinar on October 18th on "Making Perfect Orders: Delivering on Customer Expectations in a Complex World". Sign up today!

This week we're talking about retail supply chains, supply chain's place in business strategy, consumer driven complexity and supply chain transformation fails. Enjoy!
