Transforming Transportation and Logistics Through the Lens of the Pandemic

Transforming Transportation and Logistics Through the Lens of the Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic upended our world, including our supply chains. While we all knew about the complexities of supply chains before COVID-19, the unprecedented interruption of normal life threw even more variables our way. To succeed in tackling these new challenges, a mindset of flexibility and visibility, along with a healthy command of data science, is paramount.

Join XPO Logistics Chief Information Officer Mario Harik, and President of North American Transportation Drew Wilkerson, as they discuss how the pandemic changed the way we need to think about supply chains, and how we can apply what we’ve learned to the long-term future of transportation and logistics. 

 Topics will include:

•        Lessons learned on the frontlines as an essential transportation provider managing employee safety and customer service

•        Transformative trends and technologies being accelerated due to the pandemic, which will forever change how supply chains are managed

•        Building new partnerships that define your mission during the post-COVID-19 era

•        Adjustments you can make to build resilience into your supply chain and prepare for future disruptions

In addition to the opportunity to get your specific questions answered this webinar will give shippers actionable insight to start planning for the challenges that their supply chains are going to face in the near future. Join us!
