    Preparing for the Unknown - Navigating the Freight Market in 2022 & Beyond

    Preparing for the Unknown - Navigating the Freight Market in 2022 & Beyond

    How do you plan for your company's air and ocean freight shipments when the one constant in the market is unpredictability? What do you do when you can only look six months into the future, and you know that what you’re predicting is unlikely to happen?
    Jeff McCorstin, President of UPS Global Freight Forwarding, has firsthand experience leading a global organization through volatile market conditions and disruption. Jeff recently joined Scott Luton and Greg White for a livestream to share his insights based on over 30 years’ experience in supply chain… actually, that’s 32 years, 11 relocations, three continents, and 18 different jobs.
    In this conversation, Jeff focuses on:
    • How to navigate current freight market conditions and what to expect in Q4 2022 and beyond
    • What it was like getting a call from the White House in 2020
    • What participants are likely to learn at this year’s UPS Supply Chain Virtual Connect

    Dial P Crossover: FedEx Ground’s Contractor Woes

    Dial P Crossover: FedEx Ground’s Contractor Woes

    FedEx has been in the news a lot lately, and for all the wrong reasons. They are facing a challenge from many of the 6,000 contractors that handle their FedEx Ground and FedEx Ground Economy deliveries.
    Spencer Patton has been the loudest voice in the dispute. As FedEx’s largest Ground contractor – at least until August 26th when his contract was cancelled – he has used his voice to call attention to the financial and operational difficulties faced by contractors. Many of those independent service providers gathered together in person at the 2022 Contractor Expo, held just days before Patton was terminated and FedEx sued his company in Federal Court.
    In this Dial P crossover episode, Kelly Barner looks into the source of the dispute between FedEx and their Ground contractors:
    • What is the current status of the FedEx Ground contractor dispute and where did it begin?
    • What of we know about Spencer Patton?
    • What are the contractors main pain points?
    • What has FedEx’s response been?
    • How does the ongoing saga look from a macro perspective – and what we have learned from FedEx’s recent financial disclosures?

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.
