Solving the Logistics Puzzle
Show Notes

From finding enough truck drivers to sourcing ocean containers, overcoming logistics challenges is a daily – and costly – issue. In the latest episode of The Dairy Download, we speak with two experts who offer insights into how the dairy industry might solve those puzzles.

First up is Roger Cryan, Chief Economist with the American Farm Bureau Federation. From farm to fork, supply chain and logistics snarls are disrupting the flow of goods and pushing up prices to produce and buy food. Cryan discusses when these headaches might ease – and how much we’ll be paying for holiday meals in the meantime.

Next up is Dustin Braun, Vice President of Logistics and Planning at Land O’Lakes. As the cooperative’s top logistician, his role includes collaboration with employees, retail partners, transportation providers and plants. Hear his insights into how that network is ensuring the right product arrives in the right places at the right times.
