This year has been transformational for supply chains. Many topics that were top of mind yesterday have now been almost forgotten due to rapidly changing priorities. One topic, however, remains constant: sustainability.
Some of the world's largest and most innovative companies embrace sustainability and corporate responsibility across their organizations and value chains. But companies often measure and manage their sustainability performance with – at best – inaccurate data. This means that any improvement may be a statistical artifact.
Join AWS, HERE Technologies and our guest speaker from Bosch to discover how real-time data and location technology can help you build a more sustainable and efficient supply chain.
Watch the webinar and learn how to:
1) Leverage reliable data to measure and improve your CO2 footprint
2) Use the power of location to do better what-if analyses
3) Track the performance of your logistics vendors to drive SLA improvement.

Speed. Flexibility. Simplicity. It’s no wonder that shippers and carriers love drop and hook. In fact, the majority of US Fortune 500 shipments are sent through preloaded drop trailers.
The challenge with drop has been one of scale. Traditional drop services are limited to specific lanes and regions, and when demand surges, they can’t flex up to accommodate the additional volume.
In 2017, Convoy Go became the first drop-and-hook service that let carriers of all sizes, including owner-operators, haul power-only loads. This unique, modern approach to drop offered shippers flexible, nationwide capacity with the reliability they’d come to expect from asset-based carriers.
Over the last three years, technological advancements have further differentiated modern drop-and-hook services like Convoy Go. These services provide unmatched scale, flexibility, and visibility through the use of machine learning and automation.

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) took effect on July 1, 2020, replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which had been in place since 1994.
The USMCA retains most core NAFTA provisions, but with updates and revisions affecting industries and businesses with varying degrees of severity. Some businesses will notice hardly any differences at all, while others, most notably the automotive sector, will be significantly affected. The new trade agreement also modernizes the North American trade relationship, with new provisions for digital trade and intellectual property, and incentives directed at small/medium-sized businesses.
Join Livingston International and Purolator International for this webinar to gain an understanding of the specifics of the USMCA, and opportunities for U.S. businesses in the Canadian market.
You will learn:
• Specific regulatory and policy implications, including the elements of NAFTA left in place, new USMCA provisions, documentation/compliance procedures and recordkeeping requirements.
• E-commerce/Retail opportunities resulting from a change in Canada's de minimis threshold value, and relaxed customs requirements for low-value shipments.
• Potential duty savings achieved by rerouting U.S. imports arriving from Asia or Europe.
• Lifting of the "cloud of uncertainty" that hung over the U.S./Canada trade relationship in recent years.
• Revised automotive requirements, intended to boost sales among U.S. parts suppliers.
• Provisions designed specifically to encourage small businesses to engage in cross border trade.
You will leave the webinar with a greater understanding of the USMCA's key provisions, along with insight about how your business could—and should—take advantage of these new opportunities.

Industry 5.0 — the fifth industrial revolution — places workers in the middle of the technological advancements occurring throughout the supply chain. While Industry 4.0 focused on the internet of things (IoT) and interconnectedness, the real value comes from putting workers in the middle of these technological evolutions.
By keeping workers at the center of the conversation, Industry 5.0 enables strong collaborative efforts between humans and robots, provides the foundation for the rise of the worker-centric DC, and ultimately results in a happier, more productive workforce.
In this live, interactive webinar, James Hendrickson, director of product & offering management, Honeywell Safety & Productivity Solutions, will explore:
One of the key challenges facing organizations today is the shortage of candidates for supply chain and retail planning roles. Today, the ideal employee has both tactical/operational expertise and professional competencies such as leadership and analytical skills. Current statistics show there is currently one highly qualified supply chain candidate for every six job openings. The demand for talent with these highly sought after skills is high and growing fast.
