    Supply Chain Now Classic: Supply Chain Disruption is Job Security for Today’s College Graduates

    Supply Chain Now Classic: Supply Chain Disruption is Job Security for Today’s College Graduates

    For those of us already working in business, the conflict in Ukraine, COVID, and warehouse space shortages are three disruptions in what has been a very challenging last few years. But for the students getting ready to graduate from college with degrees in supply chain and management, they combine to equal job security for the foreseeable future.
    In this popular Supply Chain Now classic, Scott Luton had the chance to speak with two seniors about to graduate from Texas Christian University and Dr. Travis Tokar, a professor of Supply Chain Management with the Neely School of Business at TCU. Anne O'Connor will be graduating with a degree in supply chain and value management, and Jacob Mutscher is graduating with a double major in supply chain and value management and business information systems.
    In this conversation, they share their well-educated views on:
    • Why supply chain was the most appealing course of study for them, and what they hope to be able to do with the degree after graduation
    • The global supply chain trends they are tracking while completing their studies
    • The importance of investing in college-level supply chain programs, and how they are positioning students to succeed after graduation

    How Shippers Can Optimize Their Allocation Management Featuring Gordon Downes with NYSHEX

    How Shippers Can Optimize Their Allocation Management Featuring Gordon Downes with NYSHEX

    Managing your allocation is a dynamic process that requires proactive planning. But the tools and processes shippers use today are static and reactive resulting in shortfalls, contract penalties, and missing out on containers you contracted for. This is further complicated by the fact that a shipping carrier’s product is ‘perishable’ in the sense that the value of available capacity decreases closer to the time of departure.
    Allocation management empowers shippers to manage the forward-looking allocation of all their ocean contracts, so they can be proactive and prevent shortfalls while not overcommitting.
    In this Supply Chain Now livestream, Scott Luton and Greg White were joined by Gordon Downes, Co-Founder and CEO of NYSHEX, to discuss:
    • How to centralize your ocean contracts
    • Preventing shortfalls by making sure carrier agreements contain an appropriate level of granularity
    • Learning to ‘control the controllables’ to proactively manage vessel delays, rolls, and blank sailings

Insightful and engaging!

It’s obvious that the Supply Chain Now team puts extraordinary effort into every single episode of the podcast. But what makes this show a true standout is the quality of the guests, stories, and strategies shared. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

pat miller-stevens ,

Very genuine

I enjoy the wide variety of supply chain topics and the team of hosts bring an interesting perspective to the conversations.

elephant282 ,

Outdated information.

10 minuets into an episode in 06/21 they finished talking about sports accolades to shove an advertisement for the guest.

Next episode I listened to they talked about prices of semi conductors in 1990.

Listen to these guys complain about how life has changed if you love outdated podcasts.
