Hello there. Thank you for listening to JLL's perspectives podcast episode three. We're absolutely thrilled at the response to our podcast so far and we've got no doubt this will provide equally great insights.
We're covering the logistics of moving essential goods from suppliers to supermarket or store shelves, through the lens of a consumer good that has gripped the world's attention during the COVID-19 pandemic: toilet paper.
To address the challenges and the opportunities I've got Amy Bentley, who is general manager of supply chain solutions in Australia and New Zealand - global logistics - for Toll Group, and Jamie Guerra who is head of industrial and logistics in Australia, at JLL.
