The food and beverage industry moves quickly, notably customer demand, rising transportation costs, data, and technology. Hear Matt Stekier, senior manager of Plante Moran and Brian Winshall, executive vice president of GlobalTranz, discuss industry challenges and the strategies you need to thrive.

Shifting customer expectations and overcoming the profitability challenges of rising transportation costs are significantly reshaping the food and beverage industry. New regulations and technologies, such as ELD mandate and blockchain are turning traditional business models upside down and forcing organizations to improve data visibility to manage, track, and optimize every aspect of their logistics and supply chain operations.

With organizations looking for more effective ways to collaborate with shippers and 3PLs, it’s more important than ever that industry leaders understand market drivers and how to create strategies that provide differentiation and competitive advantage.

Listen to Matt Stekier and Brian Winshall discuss:

  • Expanding industry opportunities for strategic collaboration and data capture.
  • How blockchain can help overcome traceability and food safety challenges.
  • Controlling the “Amazon effect” by addressing the truck driver shortage, rising transportation costs, and profitability.
