Shownotes

How do you plan for your company's air and ocean freight shipments when the one constant in the market is unpredictability? What do you do when you can only look six months into the future, and you know that what you’re predicting is unlikely to happen? 

Jeff McCorstin, President of UPS Global Freight Forwarding, has firsthand experience leading a global organization through volatile market conditions and disruption. Jeff recently joined Scott Luton and Greg White for a livestream to share his insights based on over 30 years’ experience in supply chain… actually, that’s 32 years, 11 relocations, three continents, and 18 different jobs. 

In this conversation, Jeff focuses on: 

• How to navigate current freight market conditions and what to expect in Q4 2022 and beyond 

• What it was like getting a call from the White House in 2020 

• What participants are likely to learn at this year’s UPS Supply Chain Virtual Connect
