Erik Malin, Executive Vice President of CarrierDirect, an award-winning advisory firm to LTL freight carriers and third-party logistics companies, will be a speaker for The Journal of Commerce’s free webcast, “Change in the Air: Navigating a New Transportation Landscape,” on Thursday, Nov. 12. The webcast will address the state of the global supply chain and reveal key findings from the 24th Annual Trends & Issues in Logistics and Transportation study.
Joining Malin on the panel will be Dr. Karl Manrodt and Mary Holcomb, the primary researchers for the 24th annual trends and issues study, which involved in-depth interviews with leading shippers and carriers, as well as insights from executives from some of the largest logistics companies and purchasers of transportation services. During the webcast, Malin, Manrodt and Holcomb will share how shippers can become preferred partners with their service providers in a rapidly changing global supply chain plagued by regulatory issues and truck driver shortages, creating an environment in which shippers are forced to compete with one another for freight capacity.
“With our industry changing at the rapid pace it has been over the past several years, companies need to be constantly evolving their business strategies to stay competitive,” said Malin. “I’m excited to be presenting alongside some of the top academic leaders in our field to share our knowledge and expertise on how companies can navigate these changes while still remaining leaders in their space.”
