Shipping Challenges, M&A, And A Whole Lot More, With Guest Will Quinn

The conflict in the Middle East has had repercussions throughout the wholesale distribution industry. According to Reuters, global trade declined by 1.3% from November to December 2023 as militant attacks on merchant vessels in the Red Sea led to a plunge in the volumes of cargo transported in that key region, while CNBC reports that Houthi attacks in the Red Sea are not only driving up sea freight, but air freights as well, as global trade flows get increasingly disrupted. How will this impact wholesale distribution in the United States and globally? To answer that question, we brought in Will Quinn, "The Distribution Guy," to get his expert analysis on the situation. We're also joined by Andy Mitchell and Mallory Safety to discuss the latest in mergers & acquisitions in independently owned distribution. These are some key insights you don't want to miss!
