“Supply-chain issues.” Whether you’re a carrier, shipper, 3PL, manufacturer, retailer or consumer, you’ve felt the ripple effect of ongoing supply-chain disruptions. In addition to shortages of products, parts and materials, the freight transportation industry has been facing severe workforce constraints during the economic recovery from the pandemic. On top of that, the logistics sector is becoming more complex as demand increases for e-commerce fulfillment and reverse logistics services. So, how are third-party logistics companies meeting consumer demand in the midst of these industry shortages? To get answers, host Seth Clevenger speaks with Neil Shelton, chief strategy officer at GXO, and Cathy Roberson, research manager at the Reverse Logistics Association. Tune in.    


Cathy has over 20 years within the supply chain market including eleven years with UPS where she spent most of her time on competitive and market analysis for the Supply Chain Solutions subsidiary. After UPS, Cathy spent several years with various supply chain consulting firms focusing on market research before starting her own supply chain market research firm, Logistics Trends & Insights. Prior to UPS, Cathy worked at an e-commerce consulting start-up and at several libraries as a reference librarian. Cathy is currently research manager for the Reverse Logistics Association and also writes for Air Cargo World magazine and other publications. She is a frequent speaker at various supply chain conferences.
