Our guest in this week's episode is Mike Nervick, founder and CEO of Sleek Technologies. The recent passage of the long-awaited infrastructure bill could impact transportation and the movement of goods for decades to come. Nervick discusses the importance of the bill and how it will affect shippers and carriers.

There has been a lot of coverage in the news about supply chain bottlenecks and how they could affect the holiday shopping season. Consumers have been shopping early to avoid being disappointed by not being able to get the gifts they want under their trees this year. That shift has profound implications for supply chains, and retailers in particular. We discuss how they are adapting to changing trends this peak season.

The growth of online shopping and omnichannel fulfillment has resulted in the demand for smaller distribution facilities located in urban areas. We share some interesting numbers just released to back this trend.

DC Velocity's sister publication CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly has  a new 11-episode limited podcast series called the Top 10 Supply Chain Threats. Each week, a different threat to our supply chains is discussed, including capacity constraints, labor shortages, inflation and economics, weather-related issues, component and product shortages, digitalization, automation, and much more.
