    Guest: Sean Maharaj from Aarete on the threat of holiday peak season stress

    It should come as news to no one that the pandemic broke global supply chains, and they remain in need of repair.  Container ships are backed up waiting to unload. Shortages are causing massive delays. Capacity is limited, companies cannot find labor, nor can they find the drivers to transport the goods they do have. Add to that the threats of severe weather, cyber security concerns, a failing infrastructure, and lingering impacts of a worldwide pandemic. It is certainly an interesting time to be a supply chain professional. But with each of these threats comes opportunities. We’ll explore it all with industry insiders and thought leaders on "The Top 10 Supply Chain Threats”  a new, 11-episode, podcast series from CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly.


    Episode 6: Threat: Holiday Peak Season Stress
    This year’s holiday peak shipping season looks to be even more stressful than ever before as tight capacity, congestion, and factory shutdowns due to COVID outbreaks threaten to slow down the gift-giving supply chain. What can shippers do to prepare? Sean Maharaj of the global consulting firm Aarete joins Executive Editor Susan Lacefield to provide some recommendations.

    Episode 2: Threat: Spiraling Costs
    Supply chain and logistics costs are skyrocketing as demand for transportation and warehousing capacity outstrips supply. Is there any relief in sight?

    Guest: Kevin Reader of Knapp on the threat of failing to automate

    Guest: Kevin Reader of Knapp on the threat of failing to automate

    It should come as news to no one that the Covid-19 pandemic broke global supply chains, and they remain in need of repair.  Container ships are backed up waiting to unload. Shortages are causing massive delays. Capacity is limited, companies cannot find labor, nor can they find the drivers to transport the goods they do have. Add to that the threats of severe weather, cyber security concerns, a failing infrastructure, and lingering impacts of a worldwide pandemic. It is certainly an interesting time to be a supply chain professional. But with each of these threats comes opportunities. We’ll explore it all with industry insiders and thought leaders on "The Top 10 Supply Chain Threats”  a new, 11-episode, podcast series from CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly.


    Episode 4: Threat: Failing to automate
    Companies learned rather early during the pandemic that those with automated processes fared much better than those that relied on manual operations. It is no longer an option of whether to automate distribution processes, but which processes are best to undergo automation. As labor remains tight and there is an increasing need for speed and accuracy, automation is the only reasonable answer. Our guest on this episode is Kevin Reader, vice president of marketing for Knapp. He has been involved firsthand with some of the largest automation projects to date, as well as many other smaller applications where automation has solved distribution problems. We discuss how failing to automate could mean a company is no longer relevant or competitive.

Marc Palazzolo of consulting firm Kearney discusses steps companies can take to alleviate the strain.
