Supply Chain Now Classic: Supply Chain Disruption is Job Security for Today’s College Graduates

For those of us already working in business, the conflict in Ukraine, COVID, and warehouse space shortages are three disruptions in what has been a very challenging last few years. But for the students getting ready to graduate from college with degrees in supply chain and management, they combine to equal job security for the foreseeable future. In this popular Supply Chain Now classic, Scott Luton had the chance to speak with two seniors about to graduate from Texas Christian University and Dr. Travis Tokar, a professor of Supply Chain Management with the Neely School of Business at TCU. Anne O'Connor will be graduating with a degree in supply chain and value management, and Jacob Mutscher is graduating with a double major in supply chain and value management and business information systems. In this conversation, they share their well-educated views on: • Why supply chain was the most appealing course of study for them, and what they hope to be able to do with the degree after graduation • The global supply chain trends they are tracking while completing their studies • The importance of investing in college-level supply chain programs, and how they are positioning students to succeed after graduation Additional Links & Resources: Learn more about Supply Chain Now:https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now ( https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now) Subscribe to Supply Chain Now and all other Supply Chain Now programs:https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe ( https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe) Leveraging Logistics and Supply Chain for Ukraine: https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/ (https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/) 2022 Q2 U.S. Bank Freight Payment Index: https://freight.usbank.com (https://freight.usbank.com) WEBINAR: Sustainability and Profitability: The ripple effect of shipping less air https://bit.ly/3A87xFM (https://bit.ly/3A87xFM) WEBINAR- Key Elements to a Successful WMS Lifecycle: https://bit.ly/3Q3F2O6 (https://bit.ly/3Q3F2O6) This episode is hosted by Scott Luton.

How Shippers Can Optimize Their Allocation Management Featuring Gordon Downes with NYSHEX

Managing your allocation is a dynamic process that requires proactive planning. But the tools and processes shippers use today are static and reactive resulting in shortfalls, contract penalties, and missing out on containers you contracted for. This is further complicated by the fact that a shipping carrier’s product is ‘perishable’ in the sense that the value of available capacity decreases closer to the time of departure. Allocation management empowers shippers to manage the forward-looking allocation of all their ocean contracts, so they can be proactive and prevent shortfalls while not overcommitting. In this Supply Chain Now livestream, Scott Luton and Greg White were joined by Gordon Downes, Co-Founder and CEO of NYSHEX, to discuss: • How to centralize your ocean contracts • Preventing shortfalls by making sure carrier agreements contain an appropriate level of granularity • Learning to ‘control the controllables’ to proactively manage vessel delays, rolls, and blank sailings Additional Links & Resources: Learn more about Supply Chain Now:https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now ( https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now) Subscribe to Supply Chain Now and all other Supply Chain Now programs:https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe ( https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe) Learn more about NYSHEX’s allocation management tool:  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__nyshex.com_allocation-2Dmanagement_&d=DwMFaQ&c=euGZstcaTDllvimEN8b7jXrwqOf-v5A_CdpgnVfiiMM&r=-USlt9coOuFONakfNe0qzTJPOMSUR1DRdNedxWr6N_E&m=-puZKbvdzIXkeDBV-Se6PXPQ54ySqlBQFj0q4G4LXik&s=SuRT1xr00dezKh0EoQpshpWmUAUxagmBzQhhW_0jzag&e= (https://nyshex.com/allocation-management/) Listen to the conversation with Julius Tan, Director of Logistics for CarParts.com on how he thinks about optimizing his carrier allocation: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__nyshex.com_podcast_how-2Dshippers-2Dcan-2Doptimize-2Dtheir-2Dcarrier-2Dallocation_&d=DwMFaQ&c=euGZstcaTDllvimEN8b7jXrwqOf-v5A_CdpgnVfiiMM&r=-USlt9coOuFONakfNe0qzTJPOMSUR1DRdNedxWr6N_E&m=-puZKbvdzIXkeDBV-Se6PXPQ54ySqlBQFj0q4G4LXik&s=4QZBII5UX91t8aalASZdXOJ1VOhpD9LncMPwe8AbltU&e= (https://nyshex.com/podcast/how-shippers-can-optimize-their-carrier-allocation/) Leveraging Logistics and Supply Chain for Ukraine: https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/ (https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/) 2022 Q2 U.S. Bank Freight Payment Index: https://freight.usbank.com (https://freight.usbank.com) WEBINAR: Sustainability and Profitability: The ripple effect of shipping less air https://bit.ly/3A87xFM (https://bit.ly/3A87xFM) WEBINAR- Key Elements to a Successful WMS Lifecycle: https://bit.ly/3Q3F2O6 (https://bit.ly/3Q3F2O6) This episode is hosted by Scott Luton and Greg White.

Dial P for Procurement Crossover: Guarding Private Incentive to Innovate featuring Patent Attorney Wen Xie

On June 17, 2022, the member countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO) accepted a proposal made by the U.S., E.U., India, and South Africa that modifies nationally granted intellectual property rights related to the COVID-19 vaccine. The proposal was leaked early, so the world knew the vote was coming. But other than the WTO and a few media organizations, most of the world shrugged at the news, despite the big picture implications for private industry. The COVID-19 vaccine was made available on an impressive timeline, thanks to the incentives created by Operation Warp Speed. But if for-profit companies fear losing their intellectual property rights, what choice will they make in the future? Many innovations, including mRNA vaccines, are the result of private investment and risk tolerance. If companies do not believe their intellectual property rights will be respected and protected, they have less incentive to innovate and almost no incentive to collaborate. Wen Xie is a patent attorney and a Partner at Global IP Counselors, LLP. In this Dial P for Procurement crossover interview, she and host Kelly Barner review the events leading up to the proposal’s acceptance and its potential future implications: • How the WTO’s decision to waive IP rights for COVID-19 vaccines might change the decision-making calculus of for-profit companies going forward • Where we may already be seeing evidence that other international organizations are considering the extent to which they can challenge IP rights • What professionals that are not in the field of intellectual law should take away from this series of events Additional Links & Resources: Learn more about Supply Chain Now:https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now ( https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now) Subscribe to Supply Chain Now and all other Supply Chain Now programs:https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe ( https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe) Leveraging Logistics and Supply Chain for Ukraine: https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/ (https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/) 2022 Q2 U.S. Bank Freight Payment Index: https://freight.usbank.com (https://freight.usbank.com) WEBINAR- 3 ways to stay afloat through the supply chain crisis: A distributor’s story:  https://bit.ly/3uaUBeC (https://bit.ly/3uaUBeC) WEBINAR- Sustainability and Profitability: The ripple effect of shipping less air https://bit.ly/3A87xFM (https://bit.ly/3A87xFM) WEBINAR- Key Elements to a Successful WMS Lifecycle: https://bit.ly/3Q3F2O6 (https://bit.ly/3Q3F2O6) This episode is hosted by Kelly Barner.

Is Demand Planning Software the Answer to Increasing Employee Retention?

Veteran Voices Crossover: Taking the Road Less Traveled with Shirley Baez, U.S. Army Special Operations Veteran

For many people, the military functions as a big “leadership school.” Service members have contact with different types of leaders and learn to become leaders in their own right. From finding the right mentor to building a tribe of supportive people around you, who each person surrounds themselves with will often determine the path that they follow. In this Veteran Voices crossover episode, Mary Kate Soliva welcomes Shirley Baez. Shirley started thinking about joining the Army as a way of paying for college, and then the Twin Towers fell on 9/11. In that moment, perspective changed and she went from “just being a girl that wanted to go into the military for college money” to someone who genuinely wanted to serve her country. She is now a Veteran of the U.S. Army special operations community, but her service is not over. Shirley shares her honest reflections with Mary Kate about: • What it means to know you have the trust of leaders that you respect • The role she played as a part of civil affairs, reestablishing essential services in parts of the world where the population is not connected to its government • Why it was so important to have a ‘tribe’ when the time came to end her military service and enter private industry Additional Links & Resources: Learn more about Supply Chain Now:https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now ( https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now) Subscribe to Supply Chain Now and all other Supply Chain Now programs:https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe ( https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe) Leveraging Logistics and Supply Chain for Ukraine: https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/ (https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/) Post-COVID Strategies for Working Capital Survey:https://bit.ly/3yglyQj ( https://bit.ly/3yglyQj) WEBINAR- 3 ways to stay afloat through the supply chain crisis: A distributor’s story:  https://bit.ly/3uaUBeC (https://bit.ly/3uaUBeC) WEBINAR: Sustainability and Profitability: The ripple effect of shipping less air https://bit.ly/3A87xFM (https://bit.ly/3A87xFM) This episode is hosted by Mary Kate Soliva.

Scott's Favorite Episodes: Ambassador for the Open Road Featuring Kellylynn McLaughlin with Schneider

There is a shortage of long-haul truck drivers and tanker drivers in this country right now. When the issue is raised, people often point to the long, lonely hours on the road and how incompatible the working conditions are with the professional priorities of millennial workers. But everything is about your perspective, and if you ask Kellylynn McLaughlin, she talks about adventure, and meeting new people, and touring facilities. She makes it sound more like an expedition than a job. Kellylynn is a professional OTR driver and training engineer with Schneider. In 2020 she was appointed as Schneider’s first-ever ‘Women in Trucking’ Driver Ambassador, part of their diversity recruitment program to encourage new people to consider a career in trucking. In one of Scott's favorite past episodes, Kellylynn joins him along with special co-host Ward Richmond, Executive Vice President at Colliers International, to share her view of life on the road: • The excitement and danger she experiences on the road – and there are more of both than she would have expected • Why she enjoys training Schneider’s new drivers, people who come from all over the world to learn the mechanics and safety measures of OTR trucking • How she thinks the supply chain needs to be reimagined so that people – not profit – are put front and center Additional Links & Resources: Learn more about Supply Chain Now:https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now ( https://supplychainnow.com/program/supply-chain-now) Subscribe to Supply Chain Now and all other Supply Chain Now programs:https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe ( https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe) Leveraging Logistics and Supply Chain for Ukraine: https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/ (https://vectorgl.com/stand-with-ukraine/) Post-COVID Strategies for Working Capital Survey:https://bit.ly/3yglyQj ( https://bit.ly/3yglyQj) WEBINAR- 3 ways to stay afloat through the supply chain crisis: A distributor’s story:  https://bit.ly/3uaUBeC (https://bit.ly/3uaUBeC) WEBINAR: Sustainability and Profitability: The ripple effect of shipping less air https://bit.ly/3A87xFM (https://bit.ly/3A87xFM) This episode is hosted by Scott Luton and Ward Richmond.
