Tuesday, June 21, 2022 12:00pm - 2:00pm SLO Senior Center, Assembly Hall

Ticket Availability Coming Soon on Brown Paper Tickets


Veteran LLCC course presenter Ed Cabrera will explain the infrastructure, technology, and people that make the movement of goods “From Factory to Front Door” possible.


Ed will provide you with insights into the past, present, and future of automation, and get some understanding of ships, trucks, and robots.


Key to the story will focus on the people who work in the process. You will learn about the lives of the people who are most affected by the rapidly changing ways we buy, sell, and transport the billions of dollars’ worth of stuff we consume every day.


We shall move from a factory in Vietnam to a front door delivery in the American heartland. This class will touch upon a wide range of topics including shipping, robotics, management philosophy, trucking, warehousing, and all things Amazon. Rather than focusing on one part or mode of transport, Ed will lead you step by step through the process. Pulled together, this fast-moving class will be a wonderful wide-angle lens view of the entire supply chain.


Ed Cabrera taught at Atascadero High School and, before that, at Perris High School (in Southern California). He also coached numerous sports teams and advised even more clubs in his career spanning four decades. His previous LLCC classes covered a diverse set of topics including The Electoral College, Hong Kong, 1919, and Immigration. Ed is also LLCC’s I.T specialist and a member of our board of directors.
