    Episode 34: Supply Chain & Logistics - Is there an end in sight?

    Episode 34: Supply Chain & Logistics - Is there an end in sight?

    Supply chain logistics can be complicated at the best of times, but at the moment they are having a seismic impact on all of our businesses - none more so than the food and beverage producers and our property and construction sector members.

    The Australian Institute of Company Directors recently reported that supply chain issues were one of the biggest red flags in recent mid-year company reporting season. A number of our national leaders in business were reporting a drop in profits after incurring additional costs and experiencing stock shortages as a result of ongoing global supply chain disruptions, elevated staff absenteeism and delays with third party logistics providers.

    Join Fremantle Chamber CEO Danicia Quinlan in conversation with experts in the import and export supply chain on what we can expect over the next 12 months, how to shore up your business to deal with the uncertainty and some practical tips and suggestions of some things to focus on at different points along the chain.

    On the panel:

    · Darryl Daisley – Partner, Pitcher Partners

    · Kerryn Woonings – Senior Marine, Surveyor & Loss Adjuster – Crawford & Company

    · Amanda Bradfield – Operations Manager, EES Shipping
