Worldwide ERC commends Biden-Harris Administration supply chain initiative

Mar 20 | 2022

Worldwide ERC, the professional association for workforce mobility and relocation professionals, has commended the Biden-Harris Administration for its launch of the Freight Logistics Optimization Works (FLOW) pilot program and for taking steps towards improving the long-term sustainability of the supply chain.

Worldwide ERC President and CEO Lynn Shotwell explained, “Workforce mobility is critical to the operations of companies in the United States and in turn, a resilient, efficient supply chain is vital to the movement of employees and their families, from the shipping of their household goods to building materials and furnishings for their new homes.  Companies, and their employees being relocated around the United States and the world, rely on being able to settle into a new location in a timely manner. We need to address both the immediate issues caused by recent events as well as the systematic long-term problems to the supply chain.”

Worldwide ERC supports the FLOW initiative to increase communication and the exchange of information between different supply chain stakeholders, including port authorities, which are often a key transfer point for household goods. 

Lynn Shotwell concluded, “We thank the Administration for taking action through the FLOW pilot program to address the problems facing our supply chain and strengthen the movement of household goods.”
