The Future of Logistics and Trade

MIT CTL Global Leadership Lecture: The Future of Logistics and Trade - Scott Davis, CEO UPS (9/27)

UPS Chairman and CEO Scott Davis speaks with MIT Professor Yossi Sheffi in a candid and wide ranging conversation about logistics, global commerce, and other timely issues. As a member of the President’s Export Council, Mr. Davis is one of the nation’s leading advocates for free and open global trade. He talks about the rise of emerging economies and the weak U.S. economic recovery.

He also discusses the need for U.S. leadership in global trade and improved competitiveness, with more investment in transportation infrastructure. UPS is a sustainability leader with a rolling laboratory of alternative fuel vehicles, and Davis discusses the company’s efforts to reduce consumption of fossil fuels and carbon footprint. He speaks with Dr. Sheffi from the perspective as a leader of one of the world’s largest logistics providers serving more than 220 countries.
