Information Overflow - This Week in Supply Chain Management (20 / 2012)

This week was filled with preparations for our summer vacation. This year we are going to Norway.

Later on we will drive to Oslo (east coast) passing Hardangervidda National Park. On our way back we will use a more northern route, but that’s still in planning.
