December Expert Meeting

December 6 at OKKO at 12:00pm

Peter Moore

This meeting is for LML dues paid members only and male guests one time only.

Peter will discuss his career logistics and the new world of global supply chains.  The pandemic brought a shift in consumer behavior.  While some had adopted home delivery for some of their purchases, the home delivery segment exploded in 2020.  At the same time a global pandemic, new tariffs, and a ‘US Made’ movement resulted in shortages and empty shelves in every town.  Yet just two years later, products are available, profits are soaring, and the home delivery segment is a permanent part of our lives.  What is happening in the operational services we now call Supply Chain?  Who will manage the complexity of our global marketplace?  What recent inventions will power that future? 

Peter Moore has served as CEO, COO, and Founder of numerous companies in the business operations field in a 50+ year career.  Peter has an MBA in international business and completed most of a PhD in operational skills development.  Peter led the North American Logistics practice for a global consulting firm and later managed a technology process change for the Department of Homeland Security, and the US State Department.  Following 40 years in industry and government, Peter taught at three major universities to teach part-time.  Peter also wrote a monthly full-page article for Logistics Management, the global magazine for the industry.  This led to the formation of which has trained hundreds of young people in the basics of transportation and the broader logistics field.  Peter served as Dean of LTC, professor, writer, and business owner until retiring this year.
