Join Us for the First Annual #SupplyChainGeekDay
It’s no secret that we love #SupplyChainGeeks! Since the beginning of Barcoding, Inc., it has been important to us to honor and recognize what makes our supply chain success possible— the people behind the technology.
This year, we want host a special celebration to honor #SupplyChainGeeks! Join us in celebrating the first annual #SupplyChainGeekDay, with the support of our partner Zebra Technologies, on Friday, June 26—the barcode’s 46th birthday.
Let’s come together, virtually, and celebrate supply chain workers across the world!
We are excited for this opportunity to show our gratitude for the people that keep our supply chains going. Especially in times like these, the power and perseverance of the #SupplyChainGeek community continues to inspire and innovate.
Despite countless disruptions and setbacks, essential employees, like those in the supply chain industry, continue to keep our world connected and we are proud of all of their dedication and commitment to efficiency, accuracy, and connectivity.
#SupplyChainGeeks take many forms. From various roles, to different industries, you all play a key role in shaping our world. #SupplyChainGeekDay is a chance to come together over our willingness to “geek out” and solve the challenges before us.
“We’re thrilled to launch #SupplyChainGeekDay this year,” said Jody Costa, Vice President of Marketing at Barcoding, Inc. “Our goal is to recognize all the essential workers who serve as the backbone of our economy, working behind-the-scenes to meet the needs of businesses and consumers. We want to encourage business leaders to use this day as an opportunity to shower their employees with appreciation and give back to the community.”
As part of #SupplyChainGeekDay, we will unveil the 2020 recipient of the “Innovator of the Year” award. Each year, we select a team or company that has implemented a mobile or automated data capture solution that has greatly impacted the business’s efficiency, accuracy, and connectivity.

#SupplyChainGeeks for ALAN
An important part of being a #SupplyChainGeek is giving back. In order to properly celebrate #SupplyChainGeekDay, we are raising money for the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN). When disaster strikes, ALAN is there to help businesses recover by providing supply chain assistance to disaster relief organizations and other non-profits. Logistical support can be the difference between unsuccessful and successful relief efforts, so ALAN serves an important role as the connecting link.
As a part of #SupplyChainGeekDay, we’ll be raising money for ALAN’s logistical support efforts for disaster relief organizations. Find more information about how to donate here.
