About Us

Welcome to APICS

At APICS, we know that there’s more to supply chain than management, more to performance than process and more to people than position descriptions. 

The world of supply chain management never stops advancing—and neither should supply chain professionals or their organizations. Wrapping the world, supply chains both enable and inspire human and economic possibility. However, to reach their potential they require savvy operators, supervisors and leaders with the necessary knowledge and know-how.  

APICS fills this gap. We’re known for our ability to develop supply chain talent and elevate 
end-to-end supply chain performance. Nobody does this better than we do. From education and certification to benchmarking and best practices, APICS sets the industry standard.

We are essential partners in transforming the way people do business, drive growth, and reach global customers.It’s complex and it’s simple. We develop people, people improve supply chains, supply chains improve companies and the whole world economy benefits. Together with our members, partners and customers, we are united in our commitment to global supply chain excellence, innovation and resilience—achieved one person and one supply chain at a time.
