How can industry professionals and newcomers alike navigate the rapidly changing and transforming convergence of logistics and technology to drive innovation and efficiency in supply chains?

The latest episode of Hammer Down, hosted by Mike Bush, features Bart De Muynck, the Strategic Advisor for Better Supply Chains. Bush unpacks De Muynck’s extensive experience in logistics and technology, and together, they offer valuable insights into the evolution of these sectors and actionable strategies for staying ahead in a dynamic industry.

“I think there’s quite a few companies that can provide things like a TMS (transportation management system), but instead of this big, clunky machine that takes forever to implement and is very hard to use, you have these TMSs that are a little bit like LinkedIn and Facebook,” De Muynck said. “They’re very intuitive, very easy to use, very easy to implement. You get immediate value, and they’re very connected and they are part of a larger ecosystem connected to all these other applications.”
