On March 28, 2018 Alpha Pi Mu, the Honors Society of Industrial Engineers, hosted a trip to Price Chopper's distribution center located in Schenectady, Ny. Mr John Ahl, Inventory Control Summary Supervisor and Katie Kanai '18 held a discussion about distribution services, inventory management, transportation, and industry specific challenges that Price Chopper faces. This was then followed by a tour of the distribution facilities, including inbound and outbound docks, storage racks, and picking systems. They also addressed specific challenges in floral and produce shipments. Finally We would like to thank Price Chopper for their involvement. We hope to learn more from similar trips that add an important dimension to student's education that is not possible to deliver through traditional classroom instruction.
