This is the third show in our “Give your business a fresh start” series, in partnership with BluJay Solutions.
In Episode 2, “Simulation: The Future is Here” we talked to Pam Reeber, Director of Solution Consulting at BluJay Solutions, to talk all about simulation, and using AI to model scenarios within the supply chain so we can predict the future and stay ahead of the game.
Today in Episode 3 “Your Global Impact,” we’re joined by Patrick Maley, the Chief Marketing Officer at BluJay, to talk about the hugely important topic of sustainability. We’ll be discussing the impact of international shipping, how we can use technology to help us with our eco commitments and exactly how BluJay are helping us to facilitate them.
