In a survey we conducted with our Indago supply chain research community in October 2021, we asked our members, “Which parts of the physical supply chain are the most broken or need the most fixing?” Not surprising, ocean ports ranked first, but labor was a close second.

How can technology help alleviate this problem? Those are some of the key questions that Chris Jones, Executive Vice President, Industry and Services at Descartes, discusses in this Talking Logistics episode.
