Logistics Viewpoints is going on vacation next week. After six months of daily blog postings, together with my colleague Steve Banker, it’s time for me to unplug for a few days and head to the beach.
Don’t think you’ll survive without your daily fix of Logistics Viewpoints? Then maybe you need a vacation too.
Or you could catch some reruns. Here are the top ten most read postings this quarter:
- UPS Getting a Bailout (So Says FedEx)
- Crocs: From Revolutionary Supply Chain to Almost Bankrupt
- Transportation Procurement is ‘Hot’ Right Now
- Cap-and-Trade Bill Passes House
- Initial Thoughts on Walmart’s Sustainable Product Index
- Walmart’s ‘Win-Play-Show’ Assortment Strategy
- Taking the Low Road: Mudslinging YRC
- GM’s Bankruptcy and the Logistics Industry
- YRC Worldwide: Too Big to Fail?
- Logistics Predictions for 2009: A Mid-Year Update
Have you posted a comment yet? Have you visited the Logistics Viewpoints website lately? Next week is your chance to do both. Seventy three comments have been posted so far, including this one from 3PLCEO regarding my posting yesterday on “Obama’s Logistics Analogy for Healthcare Reform”:
“If I am sending something of low value and I don’t care about service, I use USPS. If I care about reliability, I use UPS or FedEx. In addition FedEx and UPS have deployed technology to improve productivity, efficiency, and customer service. USPS struggles with basic tracking. I can’t think of a worse model for health care than the USPS, unless perhaps it is the IRS.”
Go ahead, don’t be shy, post a comment and share your viewpoint on any of the 180 postings we’ve published so far. But you first need to register (click here).
