Helping UPS Craft its Vision and Strategy
Last fall (2018), Dr. Rob Handfield, Executive Director of the NC State Supply Chain Resource Cooperative (SCRC), invited UPS’s Brian Carrier and Adam Bibelhauser to the SCRC’s Semi-annual Partners Meeting. It was here that Carrier, VP of Supply Chain Innovation, and Bibelhauser, Head of Analytics Product Development, were introduced to the thought leadership and student achievement present within NC State’s supply chain community. Since then, they have become close partners with the SCRC, collaborating with its thought leaders and students to find innovative, useful solutions for UPS.
