The Economic Impact of Supply Chain Disruptions

Air date: November 4, 2021 2 PM Eastern

While some ports have announced a move to 24/7 operations, supply chain disruptions are expected to persist through 2022 and - with holiday season around the corner - what does this mean for the nation's retailers? On October 13, the Biden Administration convened a meeting with business leaders, union representatives, and port officials to address port congestion and global supply chain issues. What are the planned next steps to strengthening our supply chain and how can transportation professionals manage in the midst of disruption? Jonathan Gold, Vice President for Supply Chain and Customs Policy at the National Retail Federation, joins TT's Dan Ronan to discuss NRF's participation in the White House meeting, recent reports on consumer spending, and what work he feels needs to be done to help now.
