Can software simplify the supply chain? Ryan Petersen thinks so

Ryan Petersen, is the CEO of Flexport, ac ompany that builds software that
integrates all the different shipping vendor systems you might run into as you
try to get a product from a factory in China to a consumer in Idaho: rail,
sea, truck. We’ve talked about the supply chain and inventory management on
Decoder with a lot of our guests — the chip shortage seems to affect every
company, and sorting out how to get products made and delivered on time is a
pretty universal problem. But we haven’t really talked about how products get
from one place to another around the world. So I wanted to talk to Ryan,
figure out what Flexport’s role in all this is, what his bigger supply chain
solutions would be, and why he’s leaving his job as CEO to be executive
chairman and handing the reins to Dave Clark, who used to work at Amazon.
