Together, we are focused on doing what’s right in business and our communities. Every month, we will shine a spotlight on an exceptional team member who is helping us transform the supply chain industry. This month, we held a Q&A with Daniel Branch, Logistics Manager at e2open.

 

Q: How long have you been working for e2open?

A: Three years, all in the Logistics as a Service (LaaS) department. 

Q: Describe a typical day for you at e2open. 

A: Lots of interaction with people – customer calls, carrier calls, team calls – and a little more time on a computer than my body appreciates. 

Q: What is your favorite part about your job? 

A: Developing reliable and anti-fragile people and systems that benefit my customers. 

Q: How did you get started in the supply chain industry? 

A: Years ago, I visited a friend at the Holland, MI office and got to take in the atmosphere and culture of the LaaS department. When it came time for a career change in 2021, I looked no further because of what I’d experienced, and thankfully, the supply chain industry gave me a chance. 

Q: What are three things that motivate you the most in your job? 

A: First, the bigger picture vision of bringing peace into the chaos of the supply chain ecosystem. Second, watching members of my team grow. Third, building lasting relationships. 

Q: What’s your favorite way to unwind after a long day? 

A: Either rolling around on the ground with my two daughters (5 & 3 years old) or a long run. 

Q: If you had to compete in the Olympics, what sport/event would you choose and why? 

A: Summer Olympics: beach volleyball because I love volleyball, especially diving without real consequence. Winter Olympics: ski jumping because flying would be amazing. 

Q:  Who is the most important person in your life and why? 

A: My wife. She is the loveliest human I know, modeling love, honesty, service, and pursuit of others every day. 

Q: Do you have any pets? If so, what are they, and what are their names? 

A: No pets!

Q: What hobby are you most passionate about? 

A: See answer to question 6.

Five Supply Chain Trends Shaping the Future of Sourcing, Trade, and Logistics, Pt.1

For decades, China has represented the pinnacle of global trade. As companies around the world began offshoring manufacturing to China to cut costs, the country emerged as an international export leader. However, recent trade patterns signal a changing tide in global supply chain dynamics. In 2023, Mexico became the US’s top trader, outpacing China for the first time in 20 years. The shift reflects an emerging trend called nearshoring, where companies bring production hubs closer to their main markets. Doing so helps cut supply chain costs, reduce logistical hurdles, and swiftly respond to changing market conditions and consumer demand. During the first three quarters of 2023, foreign companies invested 47 percent more in nearshoring efforts in Mexico, mostly focused on the auto sector.
