with Jon DeCesare

Friday, January 14th, 2022 @ 12pm Pacific

What is the SUCCESS Initiative?


The California Supply Chain Success Initiative is a joint effort of the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz), the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA), the Port of Long Beach, and the CSULB Center for International Trade and Transportation (CITT),which aims to engage the diverse spectrum of stakeholders along the supply chain to identify the key challenges facing us all in moving freight through the state and beyond. The Initiative is a series of solutions-based dialogues among and between the set of system-wide stakeholders along the supply chain.


Register for the Virtual Workshop


DATE: Wednesday, September 1

TIME: 10 am – 12 pm PST

The free Virtual Workshop will provide a forum for industry, community, and policy makers to refine and prioritize the solutions that will be critical in igniting collaborative discussion and problem-solving. The workshop outcomes will be used to inform the discussion at a follow-up in-person summit for decision makers to identify solutions-driven and mutually agreed upon next steps to resolving them.

The Supply Chain Success Initiative Virtual Workshop will seek to build consensus around answers to the Initiative’s key questions:

1. What can we do better that adds value to the supply chain?

2. What does supply chain success look like for you or your organizations?

3. What obstacles are preventing you from getting there?

4. What are the risks of doing nothing?

5. What is the appropriate role for government?

The workshop will be designed to allow participants to answer these questions in small group settings using the online Remo Conference platform.

What Does the Social Media Campaign Entail?


We are inviting supply chain professionals, researchers, community members, and decision makers to provide input on innovative supply chain solutions. An important part of our engagement strategy, and one that will help to expand the discussion in the upcoming Virtual Workshop, is soliciting short videos from a wide variety of stakeholders that explain the urgency in resolving the challenges the supply chain is facing. These videos may be shared online and/or incorporated into future workshops as agenda items and discussion points.

E-Commerce and Customer Personalization

Friday, July 23rd @ 12pm PT

With the pandemic disruption, manufacturers have additional incentives to expand ecommerce capabilities. In addition to their traditional B2B customers, many manufacturers are now selling directly to consumers. The B2C segment is forcing manufacturers to focus on building a loyal customer base and be able to provide personalization of their products. We will review the trends and challenges that manufacturers face in both the B2B & B2C space. Some of these initiatives include a focus on marketing and brand awareness, leveraging insights gained from customer behavior, seamless integration to CRM & order fulfillment systems, and chatbots that enhance customer service. Above all, manufacturers are trying to present an omnichannel shopping & customer service experience, regardless of how the customer interacts with the seller.

“As a leader at Arbela Technologies I create strategies for growth for our company aligned with the technology and business consulting needs of the industries and clients we serve. I believe in high touch, hyper personalization and open and honest communication.
