As markets demand not only efficiency but agility and adaptability from supply chains in our current reality, supply chain executives have been heavily investing in automated execution and real-time visibility technologies to continue moving inventory and delivering on customer expectations.

The Logistics Industry in the U.S. represents approximately 10% of the GDP or close to 2 trillion dollars. However, data shows that the most significant activity comes from trucking. Trucking moves 71% of all the freight in America, and nearly 6% of all the full-time jobs in the country are in the trucking industry.

That translates into an $800B industry moving about 25 million trailers and containers and delivering close to a billion loads in any given year.

With billions of moving parts, and impacted by the convergence of a global pandemic and economic downturn, the trucking industry is in the process of shaking off these negative impacts with the help of innovative technologies.

In this roundtable, we will have innovators and industry veterans discussing the following questions:

  • How has the role of the supply-chain evolved in the current pandemic?
  • What are the key transportation and trucking challenges?
  • How is the industry innovating, how should the industry innovate?
  • How can academia and industry be better partners?
  • What business benefits should organizations expect from their investments in innovation?
  • What lies ahead?

Panelists will include stakeholders from various segments, including

The session will be moderated by Aleks Gollu who is a SCET lecturer and Industry Fellow at UC Berkeley and founder of PINC.
