Click, pay, collect. From gaming consoles to groceries, it’s never been easier to buy online for home delivery. But who’s getting those goodies from stores and warehouses to your doorstep? The latest episode of “The Dairy Download” explores the (often bumpy) pathways that connect products and consumers across the world.

We first get a global perspective from DairyAmerica CEO Patti Smith, who offers a look at the way logistics are impacting her business. As head of the world’s largest milk powder marketer, Smith talks about how her company is coping with supply chain challenges and what’s next for US dairy exports.

Bob Costello, chief economist and senior vice president with American Trucking Associations, also joins the podcast to discuss how the trucking industry fits into the picture. From a crush of retail sales to declining energy exploration, Costello gives a look through the windshield at how the pandemic and other forces are changing the way haulers do business.
