Because of the APICS Boston Chapter’s on-going relationship with The MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics we have been presented with a wonderful opportunity for our members.

The MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics has invited APICS Boston to join them at the 13th annual Crossroads Conference on April 4, 2017 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA.

Crossroads is where you will discover how emerging innovations in fields such as automation, energy generation, education, materials science, robotics, and sensor technology intersect with supply chain management (SCM). For example, the event showcased 3D printing before it became a high-profile innovation in the field, and introduced advances in materials science that have since helped companies to develop products. New thinking in urban logistics that was on the Crossroads agenda several years ago is now helping to shape mega-city supply chains.


  • Turning Digital Disruption into Competitive Advantage

  • Additive Manufacturing: Current Status and Future Potential

  • Visual Analytics: The Answer to Data Overload?

  • Industry Applications of a New Silicon Photonics Sensor Platform

  • Blockchain: How Transformative is the Technology?

  • How Advances in Materials Science Could Reshape Products

 No other event provides this blend of expertise - one reason why the Crossroads conference series has become the SCM community's most important forum for new ideas since its inception more than 13 years ago.

 The registration fee is normally $1000, but for members of APICS Boston MIT has offered a registration fee of $100!

 The one-day Crossroads Conference brings together experts from MIT, the world’s foremost center for technological innovation, and the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL), the global leader in supply chain education and research, to offer this truly unique learning opportunity.

 Stay ahead of the curve - and the competition - by registering now for Crossroads 2017, April 4, 2017, Tang Center, MIT, Cambridge, MA, the supply chain industry’s premier forum for ground-breaking ideas.
