On Wednesday, UPS Customer Solutions president Jim Coughlan spoke to attendees of the Supply Chain in Action executive forum taking place near Phoenix. The participants were corporate logistics managers from Fortune 1000 companies, as well as academicians and students from universities with logistics programs.

Jim took part in a conversation with other business leaders addressing a range of topics from supply chain practices and trends to how online commerce impacts the global economy. According to comScore, U.S. retail e-commerce spending reached a record $161 billion in 2011.  And Goldman Sachs forecasts e-commerce to be nearly $1 trillion by the end of next year. Before he left, I asked Jim for his thoughts about e-commerce.

The forum is only open to invited guests, though some of the footage will be available after the event. Be sure to visit Upside next week when we’ll have excerpts from Jim’s talk.

About Sherial Cubit

Since 2005, I've helped to deliver various aspects of the UPS online experience, primarily by writing content, working with agencies to develop microsites, and producing videos for our websites. Outside of work, I enjoy making jewelry, serving in parish ministries, and developing my multilingual skills. I also consume a potentially unhealthy amount of music, social media, and college football--rooting faithfully for my alma mater, the University of Texas. Hook ‘em!
