Transportation and supply chain leaders are feeling the pressure to evolve. We have to be more efficient, even as customers demand everything shipped for free yesterday. We have to be more environmentally sustainable, while protecting profitability at the same time. In short, we have to disrupt our own processes — before our competitors disrupt us out of business.

Transportation Disruption is a podcast for supply chain and transportation leaders. Each episode features a panel of experts discussing the latest trends in everything from eCommerce to sustainability. We analyze the challenges, identify opportunities, and help you find innovative ways to keep moving.

Episode 2: eCommerce and the Supply Chain Inversion

Businesses have spent decades--or centuries--optimizing shipping to bring large quantities of goods to distribution centers where consumers can pick them up. Now we’re tasked with doing the opposite: Consumers want 1:1 delivery, and they want it fast. Oh, and free, too. Our panel digs in to discover how businesses are meeting the e-commerce challenge, even without Amazon-size deep pockets.
