Show Notes

Credits: Created, Produced and Hosted by Mike King

Our end-of-year special examines the biggest stories of 2021 and the narratives that have found traction in media far beyond the confines of logistics and shipping.

We pick out the winners and losers of pandemic supply chains. We analyse labour shortages, industry consolidation, the latest acquisitions, who has money to burn, and the biggest challenges facing forwarders and shippers.

And we look at rates and forecasts for 2022, what Covid means for the future of supply chain planning, and whether shippers and carriers can ever find common ground.
