Positioning Agility as an Affordable Source of Supply Chain Resilience

March 7, 2022

This episode was recorded at the 18th annual Reverse Logistics Association Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, the center of returns management, reverse logistics, and more.

Host Scott Luton was joined by Alan Amling, Distinguished Fellow at the University of Tennessee Supply Chain Institute, and Tom Goldsby, Dee & Jimmy Haslam Chair in Logistics at Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee.

In this conversation, Scott, Alan, and Tom talk about what they see going on in supply chain – from upcoming talent to academic interests:

• The flood of new perspectives and new capital coming into the supply chain startup space as a result of the spotlight shone on it during the pandemic

• How the natural tendencies of each generation – from digital nativity to an emphasis on the importance of ESG – fuel the evolution of legacy operational strategies

• The research and modeling they are doing to better understand the costs and challenges of final mile delivery and how it can be improved
