MAC’s supply chain council aims to grow the supply chain and logistics industry in the metro region, with emphasis on key areas of supply chain management including workforce development, infrastructure to support industry and advanced manufacturing identifying barriers to growth and segments for growth.
The Supply Chain Council is instrumental in raising Atlanta’s reputation as a hub of talent and innovation in supply chain management and operations.
