ON-DEMAND WEBINAR: Manufacturing Industry Outlook & Expectations for 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic led to unprecedented levels of uncertainty in the manufacturing industry, with steep declines in demand in certain sectors while others began to surge as a result of greater e-commerce spending and adoption.
FreightWaves and Redwood Logistics recently partnered to conduct a survey of the manufacturing industry to better understand what we can expect as the industry continues to recover, including how domestic and foreign activity are likely to be impacted. This webinar discussed the survey results. Featuring Andrew Cox, FreightWaves Research Analyst, and Christina Ryan, Redwood’s Executive Vice President of Managed Services, with shared insights around:
