The industry publication Supply Chain Quarterly recently featured an interview with Ann Drake, CEO of DSC Logistics and founder of AWESOME, and described her as a “trailblazer” and a “C-Suite Crusader.” The article covers a wide range of topics with Ann — from why she believes AWESOME is growing so quickly to what her aspirations are for her granddaughters.
When asked what she finds exciting about being in the logistics business, she said, “It’s exciting because this is all about horizontal thinking. It’s about knocking down barriers, and also about working across broad themes and across organizations in the supply chain. That’s interesting, important, and challenging work.”
In addition to leading her company and working to strengthen and grow AWESOME, Ann was appointed by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure to be on a national commission on the future design of the U.S. interstate highway system. In the article Ann explains why that’s an important commitment. “The highway system has a direct impact on logistics and supply chain management, but it is also something that has long-term implications for the country.”
