Bridging the International Domestic Gap: A Conversation with DHL Supply Chain's Jim Monkmeyer

Tuesday, 26 September

9:30 am - 10:00 am (CST) / 26/sep/2023 02:30 pm - 26/sep/2023 03:00 pm
The need to connect international and domestic components of supply chains has never been clearer, but global and North American logistics networks still sometimes operate as if in different worlds. DHL Supply Chain, a subsidiary of DHL Deutsche Post, operates at the crossroads where one of the largest international distribution networks intersects with US and North American transportation needs. Near-shoring, sustainability and e-commerce all are reshaping how freight gets here and how it moves inland once it arrives. In this fireside chat, Jim Monkmeyer, president of transportation in North America for the supply chain services company, will discuss what it takes to bridge the international-domestic gap, how freight flows are changing and being redirected, and what shipper customers want.
