July ’22 Update on the Logistics situation in the USA (Feat. Marshall Taplits)

In this episode...

Sofeast's CEO Renaud Anjoran is joined again by US East-Coast supply chain and logistics expert, Marshall Taplits founder of Ship It Done.

As we get to grips with the new reality of higher shipping and energy costs, delays, and war in Europe, Renaud asks: What is the logistics situation like now in the USA, what will it be like for the rest of 2022, and what might it be like a few years from now.

They give their thoughts on cost drivers, near-shoring, the state of China and more, too.

If you're interested in global logistics and/or are importing into the USA, this one's a must-listen!
