Supply Chain Executives Who Lower Transportation Costs Improve EBIDTA

A metaphor is an interesting thing. One especially accurate metaphorical phrase is “supply chain.” There is, sometimes, a misconception as to the length of that chain. It actually extends further than conventional wisdom would have you believe.

In this “The Freight Project Podcast” episode you’ll hear:

  • The true length of the supply chain (and the increased focus on reducing costs thru effective transportation management).
  • How technology requires shippers & supply chain executives to upgrade all links in the supply chain equally, thru practices such as integration, to maintain progress, efficiency, and competitiveness.
  • How the choice moving forward for supply chain executives is really very simple: Evolution vs Extinction.
  • How blockchain in shipping is being brought up as the “silver bullet” to solve all the industries problems but that, more generally,how technology like deep learning algorithms that keep shippers focused on data analytics for actionable insight rather than booking schedules will help root unnecessary costs out of the supply chain.

We hope you enjoy this very first episode of The Freight project podcast!
