In the beginning

Headquartered in Atlanta, SME has hundreds of U.S.-based clients, with over 50% being multi-national shippers. We provide analysis and supply chain optimization services across the globe.

The company was founded in 2011 by John Haber, who previously spent a decade in Corporate Finance with UPS, one the world’s largest logistics organizations. One of the primary areas of focus during John’s tenure there was managing the UPS National Account Profitability Group. The team was charged with developing analysis models to measure UPS profitability across its top 1500 customers.

When John left UPS in 2006, his goal was to develop a fresh approach to optimizing transportation spend. He built Spend Management Experts based on deep financial experience and modern supply chain technology. Since then, SME has expanded our focus into two critical areas of the supply chain – Distribution and Warehousing/Fulfillment.
