Citybizlist — Carolyn Glynn of Igloo® Products Corp. has been selected as one of the 2018 Practitioner “Pros to Know” by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, and American Global Logistics’ Chairman and CEO, Jon Slangerup, and Chief Operating Officer, Blake Shumate were selected as Provider “Pros to Know.” All 2018 Pros to Know are honored in the March issue of the publication.
The Provider Pros to Know is a listing of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead.
The Practitioner Pros to Know is a listing of exceptional corporate executives in manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading supply chain initiatives for their respective company.
Carolyn Glynn is the Senior Manager of International Freight and Customs Compliance for Igloo Products Corp., the number one cooler manufacturer in the world with more than 500 products sold at 110,000 retail stores around the world. An Igloo cooler sells literally every 1.6 seconds, so its supply chain must perform with superior efficiency and consistency to support that kind of success.
Igloo Products Corp. works with American Global Logistics (AGL), one of the fastest-growing international supply chain and logistics solutions companies in the world. AGL specializes in navigating the kind of complex supply chain operation that Igloo requires, with global distribution and materials sourcing across air, sea and land both domestically as well as Europe and Asia.
“Materials come from all over the world, scheduled to arrive exactly when manufacturing needs them, so we can allocate the products at the right price at the right time, with exactly the modifications that customers want,” said Carolyn Glynn. “Depending on where and when our customers need products, AGL gives us the flexibility of changing lanes or modes—air, land or sea—on the fly in order to serve our customers and their needs, especially when disruptions happen.”
Jon Slangerup was appointed Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of American Global Logistics in July 2017. Prior to this position Jon was the CEO of the Port of Long Beach, and had a distinguished career with FedEx, where he advanced to become President of FedEx Canada.
Blake Shumate co-founded American Global Logistics in 2007 and was named Chief Operating Officer in July 2017. With more than 20 years of global logistics experience, he currently aligns IT, process improvement and service operations to drive positive customer experiences as AGL’s chief operating officer.
