Fireside Chat: Navigating Capacity Challenges in Cross-Border Shipments

2/16/22 1:45 pm

For the past two years, capacity shortages have rocked the nation as consumer demand for goods has skyrocketed. The headaches of moving freight are multiplied when dealing with perishables under time-sensitive demands — especially produce. Now, a further challenge is on the horizon, as Canada is imposing a controversial vaccine mandate on truckers who make cross-border shipments. To help explain strategies for overcoming these obstacles, we've brought on Bill Loupée, COO of Ben B. Schwartz & Sons, a wholesale produce distributor based in Detroit, Michigan. Bill and his team have implemented creative solutions to sourcing capacity; as a former freight broker, Bill understands both sides of the market.

Keynote: Working around and through The Everything Shortage

2/17/22 10:00 am

Kenny Vieth may not have coined the term "the everything shortage" but the president and senior analysts at ACT Research has popularized it as his research firm tracks the topsy-turvy world of automotive supply chains led by semiconductor shortages. The inability of truck manufacturers to see what shortages are next or work around employee absences from COVID has led to canceled orders, massive backlogs and the near doubling of used truck prices in auctions. What does the road ahead look like?
