Over the past 15 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has altered our way of life in many ways. Rather than visiting the mall or brick-and-mortar retail stores, consumers have turned instead to online shopping. This shift toward e-commerce has created new buying habits, as well as new challenges for the supply chain. In this episode, we explore these changing habits and how they are altering the logistics business with a guest who is right in the middle of this field. Join host Seth Clevenger as he gets the 411 on e-commerce fulfillment from Mark Manduca, chief investment officer for XPO's contract logistics segment, which will soon become a standalone company, GXO. Will e-commerce growth continue as we recover from the pandemic and people become increasingly comfortable shopping in person again? If so, how are supply chains changing to meet this demand? Tune in to find out.
