The Puppy Interview with Matt Barr of GEODIS' e-Logistics Brand

Depending on your affinity for dogs, you may want to hit pause, check the show notes, and open up the YouTube link to watch this particular episode instead of listening. Why? Because I'm joined by Matt Barr- Senior Director of Product Strategy at e-Logistics, a GEODIS brand and we're conducting this interview while half a dozen puppies crawl all over us. Yes, I did just say that puppies were crawling all over us during this entire conversation about the growth of e-commerce and how the e-logistics brand was established under GEODIS to cater to entrepreneurs in need of a logistics and software solution customized for them. You see, we conducted this interview live in Las Vegas at Manifest: The Future of Logistics conference. There was an area on the expo floor complete with a puppy lounge where Manifest partnered with a local humane society to bring in puppies each day of the conference to give folks an area to decompress from too much peopling. A brilliant sponsorship idea that GEODIS was smart as hell to seize the opportunity. It's a fun conversation that I think we hold together pretty well considering my normal reaction to this moment would be to forget any conversation and focus on puppy breath. All that to say you can listen to this audio version or you can check out the show notes for a link to the youtube version that has said puppies crawling all over us. Same convo just with puppies.WATCH THIS INTERVIEW ON YOUTUBE→WITH PUPPIES!Check out the GEODIS website and follow them on LinkedinConnect with Matt Barr on LinkedinSearch by topic and check out all our past episodes of the Digital Dispatch podcast—right on our website....

The History of Shipping with Sal Mercogliano

You’ve likely heard the phrase “if you don’t study history, you’re doomed to repeat it.” So why has much of the shipping world operated in a silo, where we’re just chugging along, making the same mistakes, and not learning from each other? That’s what we’re diving into today with maritime history professor Sal Mercogliano as well as where we stand in the marketing world. After all, the history of shipping is the history of the world and a good marketer needs to know this historical perspective compared to the present-day if they’re going to be good at storytelling. Follow Sal Mercogliano on TwitterCheck out Sal’s show “What’s Going On With Shipping” on YouTubeConnect with Blythe via her website or on Linkedin, YouTube, and TikTok...

Bing-Worthy Supply Chain Podcasts

There's no doubt that 2021 is the year that supply chain went mainstream. Juggernauts like the New York Times hired their first-ever beat reporter to cover the industry while Morgan Stanely just released their first supply chain-themed podcast. However, one podcast that hasn’t been afraid to dive into the global supply chain is Bloomberg’s Odd Lots podcast. For the last year and a half, hosts Joe Weisenthal and Tracy Alloway have been exploring and deepening their knowledge on everything from containers to trucking, rail, and of course, the ports. It’s really helped someone like myself who comes from the trucking side of things to get a macro perspective on what makes the rest of the industry move and how the pandemic has affected a particular mode of transportation. Whether you're a veteran of the industry or a newbie, I’ve gathered up ALLLLLLLL of the supply chain Odd Lots episodes that you can binge over the holiday break–and I guarantee you’re bound to learn something new. Plus it’s pretty fascinating to dive into the other aspects of the global supply chain and how each silo is handling its unique modern-day challenges.  So if you wanna catch up on some supply chain podcasts that you might have missed, I’ve put together some of my favorite clips from a handful of episodes, and then in the show notes, I’ve linked to the shows where the clips came from along with plenty more so you can listen in the order in which they were released. Binge-Worthy Shows: All links are iTunes so if you want another version, simply copy the episode title and search for it in your fav podcast player. Why Tracy Can’t Ship a Teddy Bear from Hong Kong to the U.S. Right NowHow the World’s Companies Wound Up in a Deepening Supply Chain NightmareThe Trucking Episode: Why The Industry Is Such a MessGXO’s CIO on the Past, Present, and Future of WarehousesWhat the Pandemic Did to the U.S. Rail SystemCraig Fuller on the Huge Challenge of Getting the Ports to Operate 24/7The White House’s Envoy on What They’re Doing to Fix the PortsGene Seroka on the Logistical Logjam at the Port of LARyan Peterson on How Global Supply Chains Have Gotten Even WorseWhy the Price of Wooden Shipping Pallets Has Soared...
