While trade and diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Canada remain somewhat contentious, one particularly encouraging development unfolded this week. 

The Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) and the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) have jointly announced a collaborative partnership designed to bring expanded resources for shippers looking to optimize their supply chains. 

ASCM, one of the largest nonprofit association for supply chains, has long been regarded as a forum for thought leadership. 

Meanwhile, SCMA is said to be “the voice” of Canada’s end-to-end supply chain profession, representing and serving more than 7,000 professionals across the nation.

According to spokesmen, this collaboration may enable distribution of each other’s product offerings, development of joint training programs for Global 2000 and Fortune 1000 companies, participation and establishment of joint events, and combined media collateral. 

Once the trade and political leaders of these North American powers finally get on the same page regarding regulatory matters,  we look forward to tracking how this partnership evolves.
