The Internet of Things could still be referred to as the Internet of Expensive Things because the cost of connectivity is still too high to get everything in the supply chain connected.One company working to fix that is Wiliot. They have developed tiny sensors that don't require a battery, and are inexpensive. Could this be the breakthrough that the Internet of Everything needs? To find out more I invited Steve Statler from Wiliot to come on the podcast.We had a fascinating conversation covering how Wiliot's sensors can work without needing batteries, use cases that their sensors are currently seeing, and where to from here.I learned loads, I hope you do too...f you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

We probably don't pay enough attention to the packaging used in supply chains - not that is until we receive a delivery, and it is a vastly outsized box for the size of the item being delivered.This issue of using outsized packaging affects upwards of 50% of items being delivered and is significant because apart from the excess cardboard being used, it also means far more delivery trucks are required to move the bigger boxes.One company looking to address this is Paccurate. To learn more about how Paccurate helps organisations reduce their packaging liabilities (financial and climate), I invited their co-founder and CEO James Malley to come on the podcast.We had a fascinating conversation covering the problems associated with packaging in supply chains, how Paccurate is helping organisations save money and emissions by fixing these problems, as well as their future plans.I learned loads, I hope you do too...If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

We've never featured the music industry's supply chain on this podcast, despite it being an industry that touches all of us on a daily basis. So, when I came across Phil Rich, Chief Supply Chain Officer at Sweetwater Sound, I had to get him on the show to tell us all about it.We had a fascinating conversation covering how the supply chain for musical instruments differs from regular supply  chains, how Sweetwater differentiates itself, and how the industry was impacted by Covid.I learned loads, I hope you do too...If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

Supply chains are becoming more digital every day. Even warehouses, which have been slower to change are too becoming more digital, and more efficient as a result.One of the companies helping in this space is Zebra Technologies. I invited James Pemberton from Zebra to come on the podcast to tell me more. We had a fascinating conversation covering barcodes vs RFID, how robots are becoming far more prevalent in warehouses, and the use of smart glasses/AR for picking operations, among other topics.I learned loads, I hope you do too...If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

We've all experienced poor wifi at home, or in hotels/airports etc., but when wifi is being used as critical infrastructure in supply chains, it can't fail. It needs to be up all the time.Enter Wyebot. Wyebot are a company that uses AI and works with large wifi networks to ensure maximum connectivity and uptime. This is especially important in dynamic environments such as manufacturing plants and warehouses. To learn more I invited Wyebot CEO Roger Sands to come on the podcast to tell me all about it.We had a fascinating conversation covering what are the main issues causing wifi connectivity problems, how Wyebot's solution helps, and how advances in wifi standards (wifi 6) are adding to wifi's complexity.I learned loads, I hope you do too...If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

With the advent of direct to consumer sales, not only is the forward supply chain coming under pressure, but more and more purchases are being returned, impacting the reverse supply chain.To help large organisations manage this ReverseLogix have developed their returns management system (RMS), and to find out more about this, I invited Des Frawley to come on the podcast to tell us all about it.We had a fascinating conversation covering why there is increasingly a need for a reverse logistics platform, the differences between forward, and reverse supply chains, and what the future of the reverse supply chain looks likeI learned loads, I hope you do too...If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

5G will have a significant impact on supply chains. Public 5G networks are being rolled out right now by many mobile operators, and it's also possible to roll out private 5g networks.To find out more about the implications for supply chains I invited Karin Loidl from the Fraunhofer IIS to come on the podcast.We had a fascinating conversation covering why 5G is so important, some of the use cases (including when to use 5G, and when to use wifi), and the timeframe for the different 5G version rollouts (and 6G and onwards!).I learned loads, I hope you do too...Here are some of the links that Karin referred to in the podcast:5G Bavaria Testbed Industry 4.0 (Karin's home base) 5G Positioning 5G Positioning in Industry and Logistics 5G Bavaria Testbed Automotive 5G connect (Event) If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

Increasing supply chain transparency has become a priority for many organisations in the wake of the many supply chain disruptions we have seen, and the more that are to come.Consumers are also demanding more transparency so they can see where the food they're eating comes from, and if the people producing it are being treated fairly.One startup working in this space is seedtrace.

Chillers are typically bulky, noisy energy-intensive devices loaded with toxic chemicals with a very high climate change potential. We use them all the time in supply chains to keep goods in a particular temperature range.What if you could make chillers another way? That is what Phononic has done. They have created solid-state chillers which run virtually silent, using a fraction of the power of standard chillers, and are so small they can fit in regular retail totes.To learn more I invited Dana Krug, Phononic's General Manager to come on the podcast to tell me more. We had a fascinating conversation, where Dana told me how their chillers work, how they can be utilised in supply chains for more reliable cold chains, and some results their customers have had.  I learned loads, I hope you do too...If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

If there's one part of the supply chain that can seriously do with improvement, it is the last mile delivery part.How often have you stayed home waiting for a delivery that didn't come, or didn't come when it said it would, arrived damaged, or worse still, not at all?
