In 2020, the Global Supply Chain went from an almost unheard-of “industry” to something discussed daily in the national news cycle.
“Supply Chain Issues” were the cause of almost every problem consumers encountered, and these issues drove up the cost of goods to unprecedented levels.
Join Supply Chain expert Jeremy Banta for this TIGER Talk and find out how COVID-19 (and a ship stuck in the Suez Canal) caused months-long problems of global proportions!
Jeremy Banta is a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel with over 30 years’ experience in civilian and military logistics. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Management at Columbus State.
