Guest: Paul Bingham of IHS Markit on the threat of inflation and economic uncertainty
It should come as news to no one that the pandemic broke global supply chains, and they remain in need of repair.  Container ships are backed up waiting to unload. Shortages are causing massive delays. Capacity is limited, companies cannot find labor, nor can they find the drivers to transport the goods they do have. Add to that the threats of severe weather, cyber security concerns, a failing infrastructure, and lingering impacts of a worldwide pandemic. It is certainly an interesting time to be a supply chain professional. But with each of these threats comes opportunities. We’ll explore it all with industry insiders and thought leaders on "The Top 10 Supply Chain Threats”  a new, 11-episode, podcast series from CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly.Episode 10: Threat: Inflation After operating in a low-inflation environment for many years, will companies be able to adapt to rising inflation levels? What effect will rising inflation and an uncertain economy have on the supply chain? What can supply chain executives do to prepare? Paul Bingham, director of Transportation Consulting at IHS Markit, tackles these questions and more.Moderator: Susan Lacefield, executive editor, CSCMP's Supply Chain QuarterlyLinksAbout CSCMP's Supply Chain QuarterlySubscribe to CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly Sign up for our FREE newslettersAdvertise with CSCMP's Supply Chain QuarterlyListen to our sister podcast, Logistics Matters

Guest: Kevin Reader of Knapp on the threat of failing to automate
It should come as news to no one that the Covid-19 pandemic broke global supply chains, and they remain in need of repair.  Container ships are backed up waiting to unload. Shortages are causing massive delays. Capacity is limited, companies cannot find labor, nor can they find the drivers to transport the goods they do have. Add to that the threats of severe weather, cyber security concerns, a failing infrastructure, and lingering impacts of a worldwide pandemic. It is certainly an interesting time to be a supply chain professional. But with each of these threats comes opportunities. We’ll explore it all with industry insiders and thought leaders on "The Top 10 Supply Chain Threats”  a new, 11-episode, podcast series from CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly.Episode 4: Threat: Failing to automateCompanies learned rather early during the pandemic that those with automated processes fared much better than those that relied on manual operations. It is no longer an option of whether to automate distribution processes, but which processes are best to undergo automation. As labor remains tight and there is an increasing need for speed and accuracy, automation is the only reasonable answer. Our guest on this episode is Kevin Reader, vice president of marketing for Knapp. He has been involved firsthand with some of the largest automation projects to date, as well as many other smaller applications where automation has solved distribution problems. We discuss how failing to automate could mean a company is no longer relevant or competitive. LinksAbout CSCMP's Supply Chain QuarterlySubscribe to CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly Sign up for our FREE newslettersAdvertise with CSCMP's Supply Chain QuarterlyListen to our sister podcast, Logistics Matters
