The State of Flow: An Analysis of North American Port Efficiency

Tuesday, 28 February

2:00 pm - 2:45 pm (PST) / 28/feb/2023 10:00 pm - 28/feb/2023 10:45 pm
With a deep background in directing military logistics, Gen. Stephen Lyons spent much of 2022 marshaling container lines, marine terminals, truckers, and shippers through historic US port congestion. As the White House Port Envoy, Lyons sees congestion easing through the supply chain, and with it the federal government’s recently active direct role. In his role, Lyons enjoys a rare and expansive view of the US supply chain, what works and what doesn't, and what needs to be done to ensure the system functions when the next inevitable cargo surge materializes. Journal of Commerce executive editor Mark Szakonyi will discuss these and other topics in a wide-ranging conversation with Gen. Lyons.
