Since 1995, LQ Magazine has published ideas for leadership in logistics and supply chain management, featuring articles written by industry leaders for their peers.

LQ's Executive Exchange builds on a tradition of introducing and demonstrating new leading ideas by senior-level practitioners in North America for supply chain management.
