Apr 03 2020
This episode of QuickConversations was recorded on March 30, 2020 in New York City – the current epicenter of the coronavirus. Depending upon when you’re listening to this program, the virus’ hot spots will likely be somewhere else. But wherever it’s traveled to, one thing is for sure: COVID-19 not only represents an acute, sometimes dire health concern, but also an unprecedented impact on our global supply chains as we know them. After all:How do you move business-critical high-tech components across borders when you can’t move cross-border?How do you manage just-in-time deliveries when the airline routes you depend on change – even be cancelled – at any moment?And of course, how do you keep your own workforce safe and active during a global pandemic?Those are just some of the challenges that Mike LoRusso is facing and solving every day. Mike is Senior Vice President and General Manager of Quick Specialty Logistics.
