    The Future of Freight is Here: How Uber is Transforming Freight

    Thursday, October 22 at 2pm EST


    Bill Driegert, Head of Operations, Uber Freight

    Webinar Description

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, rapid change and disruption to the status quo have shocked supply chains across all industries. This is especially true in the consumer health space. Producers of PPE and cleaning supplies (from essential face masks to hand sanitizer) struggled to keep up with consumer demand early in the pandemic and have continued to face challenges. At the same time, consumer demand for personal health and wellness products have skyrocketed as people have more time than ever to invest in themselves.

    For many in the sector, manual and labor-intensive processes across the supply chain slow operations down and create bottlenecks. Digital procurement and transportation execution technology is now a crucial asset for health businesses across the country to efficiently and cost-effectively move products - not just a nice-to-have.

    In this webinar, Uber Freight’s Head of Operations Bill Driegert will explain how consumer health companies can modernize their logistics operations and take advantage of real-time market insights to optimize quick (and business-critical) decision-making. He’ll also discuss how Uber Freight consumer health customers have harnessed supply chain technology throughout the current pandemic to get products where they’re most needed.

    Thursday, October 29 at 2pm EST


    Ryan Gooley, Recall Consultant, Stericycle Expert Solutions
    Diane McEnroe, Partner, Sidley Austin LLP

    Webinar Description  

    Product recalls are always challenging for an organization, add in a global pandemic, and those challenges can multiple. This webinar will leverage a case study on the hand sanitizer recalls announced this year and cover some of the challenges companies may face when selling/distributing products into non-traditional channels, particularly when products are launched quickly as we saw in response to the COVID crisis. It will touch on legal authorities, regulatory and logistical challenges that OTC and consumer products companies may face when the recall extends to retail and consumers. There is the potential for significant, lasting impacts on the way recalls may need to be managed in the future because of this change in expectations.

    Key Takeaways

    •  Share real life case study of factors a company must consider and address when responding to a product recall.
    • Provide learnings and best practices to help companies have the right resources to respond to a recall in the future.
    • Address legal and jurisdictional authority challenges.
