The New England WERCouncil
would like to invite you to participate in our
Networking Breakfast & Tour at Ken's Foods
Friday, September 21st from 8:00 am - 10:30 am

Space is limited to the first 30 registrants

Hiring and keeping workers is a major challenge for today's supply chain organizations. To combat this growing problem, when is the right time for distribution centers to turn to robotics and other technologies?

This event begins with a networking breakfast alongside other warehouse professionals followed by a talk with Art Sebastiano - a supply chain veteran and current CIO of Ken's Foods. Art will describe his experiences in choosing and fine-tuning supply chain technologies to meet the mission critical needs of manufacturing and 3PL's. He will also describe how Ken's Foods alleviated its own labor shortages with robotics.

Our breakfast and talk will be followed by a tour of the Ken's Foods DC which is currently operated by Barrett Distribution - during which a Barrett Representative will bring to life the key elements of Art's discussion from a "hands-on" perspective.
