All of us in supply chain management rely on a network of global freight carriers. In March I had the opportunity to conduct a video interview with Dave Kevern, vice president, World-Wide Services at FedEx.
My questions to Dave ranged from the major challenges faced by the transportation carrier industry to the global need for effective risk management strategies. To each of these questions Dave responded with clarity and detail. For example, on the issue of environmental sustainability, Dave indicated that FedEx has a goal to obtain 30 percent of its jet fuel from alternative sources by 2030. And on the subject of fuel costs, Dave did not mince words when he elaborated on the potential alternative fuels have for ending oil's “stranglehold on the transportation sector.”
I would like to thank Dave for sharing his insights on the world of transportation and encourage you to watch this video.
