Decoding the Supply Chain for 2023
The last two years were full of disruption and upheaval in the supply chain and logistics sectors. Surging demand, record cargo volumes, skyrocketing prices and unprecedented congestion are just a few of the challenges that distributors have faced in their efforts to obtain goods from their suppliers and deliver products to their customers. In this episode of The Discerning Distributor, host Alex Chausovsky and his guest Samantha Jones of Rocketshipping explore all these topics and more. Most importantly, they discuss the latest pertinent data as we close out 2022 with a softening economy and offer insights and guidance on what distributors should do to optimize their supply chain strategy for 2023 and beyond.
