When pigs fly – the future of logistics

The demands of today’s marketplace are moving in one direction: giving us exactly what we want, when and where we want it. With this in mind, Alan Amling reimagines the supply chain of the future.

TED@UPS Speaker: Alan Amling

How industrial-era rules are changing… making possible what once seemed impossible.

Looking forward and back to the future, Amling observes how industrial-era rules are changing in manufacturing and transportation, making possible what once seemed impossible.

Amling will peek into the future to examine how these changes will impact our on-demand society and radically transform the logistics of tomorrow.

As the VP of Global Logistics and Marketing, Amling oversees marketing efforts for UPS’s global logistics and distribution services.

Most of his 23 years with UPS have been spent in development roles, with six years working on e-commerce capabilities and another six years in new product development, where he oversaw the rise of some of UPS’s largest product and marketing initiatives.

He began his UPS career in 1982 working as a seasonal employee loading and unloading package feeders for four years before rejoining UPS in 1992.
