Working through challenging situations teaches teams a lot of lessons. The pandemic taught supply chain teams about the value of options, the importance of getting to market quickly, and the dangers of having an overly complex, elongated supply chain. At the same time, it demonstrated the difference that can be made by having strong relationships and actionable transparency.
Frank Dreischarf is the Senior Vice President of Supply Chain Solutions and LTL Operations at R2 Logistics. He has over 20 years of experience in supply chain distribution and has managed more than $200 Million in transportation spend. Frank has always believed in the power and importance of relationships, from his first post-college role to today.
In this episode, Frank joins host Scott Luton to speak about several topics which he has a lot of professional passion:
• How he and his team apply their expertise and high service levels to help small to medium-sized companies optimize their LTL spend
• The current status of global supply chain operations, with a special focus on doing business in or with China
• Why operating a 3PL is like being in the ‘headache elimination’ business, and why he appreciates being able to fulfill that important role for his customers
