This October, Gro Intelligence’s SVP of Agribusiness James Heneghan was invited by Professor Dr. Cindy Chuang and Dean Dr. David Martin to speak at Western Connecticut State University’s Ancell Dean’s Speaker Series. Heneghan joined Odyssey Logistics & Technology's Cosmo Alberico to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global agricultural supply chain.
Supply Chain Dislocations During the Pandemic
Heneghan and Alberico focused on supply chain dislocations during the pandemic and the impacts they have had on people globally, including:
- Reductions in product inventories and availability
- Higher prices and inflation
Heneghan shared his view on the agricultural supply chain and climate impacts through the data and analytics Gro Intelligence provides.
