The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc upon supply chains, caused industry-wide shutdowns in various critical sectors, and upended personnel and employment decisions and workplace processes. Throughout the logistics sector, those impacts have also been felt, albeit in varying degrees. As the world, and the 3PL sector navigates the “new normal,” new day to day business practices and operational needs emerge, as do new regulatory and legal requisites and adaptations, and also the possibilities of acquisition opportunities or divestitures. This Webinar will, from a practical and legal standpoint, touch upon prudent and forward-leaning business strategies in the new normal of the COVID era for 3PLs. These strategies will assist with both new regulatory compliance, supply chain protections (physical and financial), updated contracting practices, and corporate structure issues. The Webinar will also provide insight into the possibility to take advantage, from an M&A standpoint, of acquisition opportunities in the logistics space, and also opportunities for full or partial divestitures or exit strategies.

We are about six months away from the 2020 Elections and the elections have somewhat taken a backseat to the COVID-19 pandemic and the disastrous effects on the American economy. The unemployment rate is hovering around 15% the highest since the Great Depression. But the fact remains we still have a Presidential Election in November along with all the House of Representatives seats and a third of the U.S. Senate seats up for re-election. Nationally recognized expert in the field of public opinion and political analyst Brenda Gianiny from Axis Research will provide an in-depth look in the 2020 elections and how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the key races. Who is it hurting? Who is winning? Who will win big in November?
