Broad School Supply Chain Management Doctoral Candidate M. Douglas (Doug) Voss, Assistant Professor of Marketing and Supply Chain Management George Zsidisin and Matthew Schlosser, the director of sourcing and systems at Hershey Foods and a recent MS Logistics graduate, will be recognized with a best research award at the upcoming Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals annual educator’s conference.

The trio will receive the distinguished E. Grosvenor Plowman Award from the Council for their work titled, “Shipper-Carrier Relationships and their Effect on Carrier Performance.” Using data and expertise facilitated by Schlosser and Hershey Foods, their findings indicate that closer relationships between shippers and carriers have no effect on carriers’ on-time performance but significantly influence carriers’ willingness to commit assets to the shipper and accept loads during times of constrained transportation capacity.

Voss’ research interests include supply chain security, logistics purchasing decisions and logistics personnel issues.

Zsidisin’s research focuses on supply risk assessment and management, supply chain metrics and the use of IT in managing supply chains.
