What are shippers doing to orchestrate the supply chain? How are they tackling capacity, service, visibility and control?
That's the focus of our Aug. 22 LiveOnWeb program, "Orchestrating the Supply Chain," which comes the same week as the release of our 2018 Top 100 Private Carriers rankings. Watch the replay above.
The livestream program discusses those rankings and who's new to the list. That conversation is led by Daniel Bearth, Transport Topics' senior features writer who coordinated the compilation of the rankings.
Our guests help us delve into deeper exploration of how shippers are seeking better ways to manage transportation. Joining us live in-studio were:
- Jason Foshaug, president and CEO at VelocityRater, an Atlanta-based company that provides information that allows carriers and shippers to collaborate to reduce dwell times.
- Ron Drogan, president of Red Classic Transportation Services of Charlotte, N.C., which is wholly owned by Coca Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated.
The program also features pre-recorded interviews with:
- Brad Jenkins, vice president of supply and distribution for Pilot Flying J and Pilot Thomas Logistics. (See full interview with Jenkins here.)
- Chris Sultemeier, a consultant and former executive vice president of logistics for Walmart Inc., who helps retail, distribution, shipping and transportation companies build out or streamline operations. (See full interview with Sultemeier here.)
Transport Topics Associate News Editor/Print and Multimedia Dan Ronan will host the program.
