Mitch Mac Donald has more than 30 years of experience in both the newspaper and magazine businesses. He has covered the logistics and supply chain fields since 1988. Twice named one of the Top 10 Business Journalists in the U.S., he has served in a multitude of editorial and publishing roles. The leading force behind the launch of Supply Chain Management Review, he was that brand's founding publisher and editorial director from 1997 to 2000. Additionally, he has served as news editor, chief editor, publisher and editorial director of Logistics Management, as well as publisher of Modern Materials Handling. Mitch is also the president and CEO of Agile Business Media, LLC, the parent company of DC VELOCITY and CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly.
During his nearly 40-year career in logistics, John Janson has worked as both a seller and a buyer of logistics services. That proved to be just the background he needed to deal with the recent trucking capacity crunch.
While media coverage of the outbreak has focused largely on the human toll (and rightly so), there is a supply chain lesson to be learned. And you need not wait for the crisis to abate to act on that lesson.
