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, Supply Chain Now hosts Scott Luton and Greg White are joined by James Malley, Co-Founder and CEO, Paccurate. In an era of rising shipping costs, Paccurate not only helps companies optimize the way they pack and ship in order to save money, they can also help the supply chain contribute to corporate sustainability targets by using (and wasting) less packing material and fuel. James, Scott, and Greg discuss recent news stories related to supply chain capacity and costs:

• News that shipping fees are going up in advance of the holidays – adding to an already (not so) perfect storm of supply chain backlogs and container shortages

• How shipping container shortages are inflating costs and changing the profitability and viability of entire product lines

• Why the time may have come for us to rediscover supply chain basics, practices like pooling orders, in order to increase efficiency
