The shortage of supply chain talent, especially on the line, isn’t new: It just became more visible during the pandemic. What’s more, with baby boomers retiring every day, it’s only likely to become more of a challenge in the future. What’s a supply chain manager to do? The answer is to begin looking for talent among overlooked and underutilized communities.
On this episode of The reBound, Tim Engstrom joins Abe Eshkenazi, CEO of the Association for Supply Chain Management, and Bob Trebilcock, consulting editor of Supply Chain Management Review, to discuss a new approach to recruitment. As the SVP of supply chain at Essendant and an adjunct professor at Elmhurst College, Engstrom and his team have developed a playbook to bring people with disabilities, second chance hires and veterans into operations.

If your supply chain seems more complicated than ever, you’re not alone, according to Arun Kochar, a partner with the consulting firm Kearney. As Kochar sees it, we’ve entered a new era of dynamic supply chain management, one in which organizations are more dependent than ever on their suppliers as well as service providers such as contract manufacturers, 3PLs, cloud-based software providers and outsourced partners for planning and procurement. Think of it as Supply-chain-as-a-Service.   
On this episode of The Rebound, hosts Abe Eshkenazi, CEO of the Association for Supply Chain Management, and Bob Trebilcock, consulting editor of Supply Chain Management Review, explore with Kochar what makes dynamic supply chains different, along with the four key components to the Supply-chain-as-a-Service model.

Listen in as Arup’s Catarina Carvalho discusses the rise of mega cities and the reasons supply chain managers need to rethink their strategies for serving urban customers.  
On this episode of The Rebound, Catarina Carvalho, Americas East Cities Logistics and Ops leader for the global consulting firm Arup discusses how population growth and the expansion of mega cities is transforming logistics in urban areas. ASCM CEO Abe Eshkenazi and SCMR Editor Bob Trebilcock host. 
Drive around any major city anywhere in the world and it’s impossible not to notice the pileup of double parked trucks and parcel delivery vehicles snarling traffic. If you don’t happen to live in a mega city, it’s easy to shrug it off as traffic coming with the territory. But there are implications for supply chain managers: The Wall Street Journal estimates that urban congestion costs the trucking industry $74.5 billion and leads to about 1.2 billion hours of delay annually. Add the dramatic increase in parcel deliveries associated with e-commerce fulfillment, and it’s no surprise that cities, especially in Europe, are limiting when trucks can come into the city and what types of vehicles can be used for deliveries. Those limits could be coming to your neighborhood next.   
On this episode of The Rebound, Arup’s Catarina Carvalho discusses the challenges of urban logistics, the potential impacts of new regulations and strategies supply chain managers should consider when doing business in a major city. It’s time to pay attention to urban logistics.

On this episode of The Rebound, Brandon Marugg, the chief operating officer at ALOM, a manager of global supply chains, explains why and where his firm is investing in AI to take the supply chain to the next level, along with the reasons we need to be be cautious with this powerful new technology. ASCM  CEO Abe Eshkenazi and SCMR Editor Bob Trebilcock host. 
 
It's hard to imagine a technology that has garnered as much press as Artificial Intelligence. And, it seems as if we’re of two minds about AI: It’s either lauded as the most important technological development of the last 100 years, one that will revolutionize our lives, or a precursor to the end of humanity as we know it. It is all a little scary. But, maybe it doesn’t have to be, at least for supply chain managers.  
 
On this episode of The Rebound, ASCM CEO Abe Eshkenazi and SCMR Editor Bob Trebilcock talk with ALOM’s Brandon Marugg about the present and future potential applications for AI, along with the some of the reasons we may all need to proceed with caution.
