WSI’S FAVORITE SUPPLY CHAIN PODCASTS
The supply chain is busy, and so are its employees. Super busy. Who-has-the-time-to-sit-down-and-read-a-book busy. Whether you’re doing chores at home, working out at the gym, or walking through the aisles at the grocery store, podcasts are a great way to consume media without taking you away from the other things you need to get done. If you’re looking for an easy way to stay up to date on the latest innovations, developments, and trends in the world of logistics, we have just the thing.
