Shownotes

The Supply Chain Buzz is Supply Chain Now’s regular Monday livestream, held at 12n ET each week. This show focuses on some of the leading stories from global supply chain and global business, always with special guests – the most important of which is the live audience!

In this episode of The Buzz, made possible in partnership with the team at Azul Arc, Supply Chain Now hosts Scott Luton and Greg White find the strength to rise above the temptation to discuss sandwiches for the entire hour (inspired by this week’s episode of This Week in Business History – 5 Things You Didn’t Know About the Sandwich Industry).

Greg and Scott start the week by discussing a number of breaking news stories that supply chain professionals won’t want to miss:

• The key takeaways from the Q3 U.S. Bank Freight Payment Index, including serious driver and equipment shortages as well as fuel price increases

• Why Saks 5th Avenue is partnering with GXO Logistics to create a direct-to-consumer fulfillment hub ahead of the dramatic increase in demand expected in luxury goods this holiday season

• What it means for the rest of the world’s economies and private businesses that China’s economy has now contracted for the second consecutive month
