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." The program offers insight from:
- 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.
- 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.)
The program is hosted by Transport Topics Associate News Editor/Print and Multimedia Dan Ronan. He is joined by Daniel Bearth, Transport Topics' senior features writer who coordinated the compilation of the 2018 Top 100 Private Carrier rankings.
