1882 - George Campton's Newhall general store explodes [story]
general store


The supply chain to the United States and around the world is in critical condition. From manufacturing to manpower to logistics, the system can’t keep up with demand. Our ports have become bottlenecks. In California, dozens of cargo ships drift offshore, carrying thousands of cargo containers as they await their turn to unload at the Port of Los Angeles.

As a crush of businesses attempts to restock pandemic-depleted inventories, business owners (and customers) are feeling the effects. Now what?

Join VIA on Tuesday, Oct. 19, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m., as it hosts a virtual panel discussion about the steps and measures some businesses have taken to help alleviate their supply chain problems. Walk away with tested ideas that could help your company mitigate these issues through education and training.
