To err is human. To keep the global supply chain running, divine. Supply chain risk isn’t limited to black swan events like fires, floods and hurricanes. Many of the challenges businesses face are the result of human factors as well. Whether it’s something caused internally, or big changes to policies and regulations (Brexit, U.S.-China tariffs, etc.), these man-made issues can be just as disruptive as the largest storm.
In this episode of Supply Chain Radio, Matt Gunn and Guy Courtin discuss the human element of disruption, and how businesses are working to keep the supply chain running through unexpected turns of events.
Customers want it fast, they want it free, and they want it cheap. And when the order isn’t quite right, they often want to send it back. Especially in the world of e-commerce. While online shopping has been a boon to brands, retailers, and consumers alike, it also has a dark side: returns.
By some estimates, returns will cost U.S. companies as much as $550 billion by 2020. And perhaps no part of the business will bear the burden more than the supply chain. In this episode of Supply Chain Radio, SEKO Logistics’ Brian Bourke and David Schulhof of Red Hot Penny join Matt Gunn to discuss the rising challenge of returns and the future of reverse logistics.

In this episode of Reinventing Retail, we’re joined by Forbes contributor Richard Kestenbaum of Triangle Capital, to discuss the ways data tracking and algorithms can enhance everything from the shopping experience to product design (if we’ll let it). Listen now:
