The world of Supply Chain is exceedingly opaque and there are very few places on internet nowadays where you can learn anything of value about it.
While Reddit targets a young category of users and Wikipedia has been largely subverted by enterprise software vendors (as far as supply chain topics are concerned), LinkedIn remains one of the only trustworthy source of information in the field, due to the experience of the professionals that are sharing their experiences. However, this information does not remain easily accessible after a while. Therefore, it would be interesting to have a place to discuss the specifics of the Supply Chain field.
For this purpose, Lokad has launched a new open discussion board, reachable at https://news.lokad.com/, an aggregator that consolidates interesting links to various Supply Chain topics and where the community can discuss and submit their own subjects. The goal is to share links of interest for Supply Chain-minded people, giving them the chance to debate and contribute to further achievements in the field.
