Hear from Rick Dircks, Co-Founder and Executive VP of Dircks Logistics, as he reveals startling facts and figures about the state of play of the US and North American logistics landscape and how UK companies can address the opportunities and jump the hurdles.

Key learnings include:

  • The consequences of demand being so much greater than supply coupled with post-Covid labour shortages
  • The benefits of working through US-based companies to deliver faster more efficiency and local knowledge
  • How to work around the fact that larger customers tend to get better service/priority
  • Effective stocking strategies to cover damaged/returned goods and respond to short term demand
  • Pooling resources and aggregating supplies to get better deals
