Introducing HABERGISTICS: Insights into Supply Chain & Logistics Issues

May 15, 2020


With so many folks working from home these days, it can get a bit lonely. So, we decided to have a bit of fun while also sharing valuable insights into supply chain and logistics issues. Introducing HABERGISTICS, a series of short videos featuring our founder and CEO, John Haber, and highlighting some of our team members hard at work.

HABERGISTICS: Episode 1

In our first video, John talked about the hard work supply chain and logistics providers, carriers and postal workers are doing in this tough environment. All are considered essential workers. We thank them all for their work in the warehouses, deliveries to grocery stores as well as deliveries to our front door.  Also, don’t forget to watch the end of the video where you see our President of Sales & Marketing, Kim McQuilken on a very important phone call (yeah, not really!).

HABERGISTICS: Episode 2

In Episode 2, we find that John likes airplanes - the paper kind! However, it kind of rolls into his message about UPS’ recent earnings – double digit growth in their Next Day Air product (real airplanes, not paper ones). But, perhaps more interesting was that 70% of the delivery volume in March were residential. These types of packages are expensive to deliver versus commercial deliveries. Plus, the huge volumes of packages are stressing both supply chain and logistics networks.

HABERGISTICS: Episode 3

Finally, our latest video, John discusses the retail industry. He comments on how it’s adapting and makes projections on how the industry will look post-pandemic. Perhaps a hint may be a similar approach that Bed Bath & Beyond is taking, having converted about 25% of its stores across the North America into regional fulfillment centers. As a result, UBS expects 100,000 stores to disappear by 2025. Ouch!

Stay for the end of the video as we find our Director of Database Modeling & Data Analytics, Rich Rosario missing yet another meeting.
