Fresh update on "retail" discussed on NPR's Business Story of the Day

"Small business checking at Wells Fargo dot com. Many of the nation's largest ports are deeply congested, massive container ships are having to wait days and days and days to get unloaded, which means you have to wait longer for the things you bought and companies have to wait longer for critical supplies. It's all created, a big supply chain crisis. With no end in sight to the delays retailers and ship owners are starting to look for alternatives. And PR's Jackie northam has the story. There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to unloading containers from massive cargo ships like the one here at the port of Baltimore. The cables and spool from giant wheels on cranes that tower 425 feet above the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Containers are plucked from ships and dangle above the key before being gently lowered onto a waiting flatbed truck. About a decade ago, the porta Baltimore underwent an expansion, dredging the channel and investing in the super sized Chinese made cranes so the port could accommodate much bigger ships. William Doyle, the port's executive director, says that expansion continues. And if you look, there are four brand new cranes that just came in. They will all be operational in January. Doyle says the timing of the new cranes couldn't be better for the port of Baltimore. It's trying to attract more shipping companies that are tired of the long delays at other ports. Doyle says two major companies recently started bringing more of their ships here. He expects more will follow. Would you send your cargo into the West Coast right now? No, of course not. You try to find another area to bring it to. And I think that's what's happening now. The big ports such as Los Angeles and Long Beach can take in much larger ships than the port of Baltimore. At the prompting of The White House the two ports agreed to start working 24 7. But with congestion at an all time high retailers and shipping companies are still looking for alternatives. Just anchored is vice president of supply chain for the retail industry leaders association, which represents more than 200 large companies, including CVS, Walgreens, and lows. She says some retailers are looking at using smaller ships to go to smaller ports. All of our retailers are again collaborating with their suppliers with their carriers and logistics service providers to find ways to flex those supply chains, reroute around particular areas of disruption. But shipping is tightly integrated across the world. Even if you reroute, there's no guarantee that cargo will show up on shelves anytime sooner. Lars Mikael Jensen is responsible for running a global network of vessels from Maersk, the world's largest shipping company. He says long delays are happening everywhere. Obviously, U.S. West Coast is the worst at the moment. In Europe, it's the big UK port of Felix though. There you wait up to a week if you come with a big ship, then in Shanghai and ningbo maybe you wait two or three or four days. Jensen says Maersk has more than 700 ships of all sizes on the water right now, and is planning to bring on more. Every ship that is capable of sailing and can do that in a safe manner is out saving unless they are waiting to get alongside. Denver says some large retailers are looking for their own ships to charter. That's not a solution that's necessarily available to everyone or that's a fit for everyone. That's because shipping costs, the freight rates have gone through the roof. Peter techwell is a maritime trade specialist at IHS market, a global information and analytics firm. Even though the reliability of the service has greatly deteriorated the freight rates are now pre-pandemic they would have been maybe $2000 or less to ship a container say from Shanghai to Los Angeles. Now those rates are north of $20,000. Despite the soaring costs, the demand for consumer goods is still high, which means the whole shipping industry is going to have to continue to find new and quicker ways to get goods to.

They were early on the drops that they would do with designers. We ran out a well. That's what it is. We're going to pay him more employees more and while it may not be the experience. I like all the time. You're exactly right. That discovery idea comes back to me. Of what i always say. Retail is a game of being brilliant on the basics. Don't care if it was wanamaker's i don't care for the original macy's i don't care if it's lululemon. Great retail is still about how to engage a stranger in a way that makes them feel for those few minutes that they matter and great merchandising. Still matters i think the idea of stack at high and hope to god. That flies is gone either some odd partnerships out there now Gap is now going to do homegoods for at walmart.

Oh we have five hundred thousand followers knowing gives a damn. Did someone buy it from you for more money. That makes a profit for your business and so many direct to consumer companies tout. How great they are. And they're all bleeding incredible amounts of money especially in the rental space. Which if you had time to talk about would be great. But what are your thoughts. I mean i agree with you. One of the things that i love. I think target does so well. Is they understand who their audiences. And there's this other idea that you. And i both don't agree with this idea that like the middle is dying and that all that exists luxury or value. I think targets the perfect example and iphone is not a luxury item even within its category. It's more expensive disney products where they have disney store store and stores are not the cheaper toy option if anyone ever bought some for a kid you know. You're spending ten times as much for disney toy as we would for a similar nonmandatory Casper is not a value Ulta maybe net similar lane but it's about understanding what the middle wants and understanding their audience and target recognizes that. I want to save money on socks. I don't wanna spend top dollar there. But i'm willing to spend top dollar for my smartphone or for the present for my child and that under that level of nuance. Understanding of their audience is why they thrive because then they can be disciplined and then they can make smart choices in terms of who they partner with what they provide. And i think that type of thinking is is. What gets me excited. I have to agree with you on the rental side i was like how is this ever gonna have long-term legs. I the only thing. The only reason i withhold judgment is because i've been wrong about enough things that i don't have any real like a strong enough thesis on and so i i kind of stay on the sidelines for this one but it seems a part of me like maybe i'm biased..

Organized Retail Crime (MM #3863)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. I've tucked on this before, but it's getting worse and worse from what I understand. Organized retail crime is on the big time uprise. In fact, Walgreens has announced they're going to close some stores in San Francisco because the crime has gotten so bad. The biggest problem of course we have number one, staffing issues. Two, with business being up and down, they don't staff them well enough when they do have the people. So number three that makes it a good time for people who are organized in their crime to come in and just start stealing things. I've seen this happen throughout the years at Walmart's where organized crime rings come in and start stealing stuff just grabbing stuff off the racks and running out the door. Now sure a lot of the drugs are locked up behind the counter, the razor blade isles, they're locked up too, but that doesn't stop people. Because what they're doing is stealing the goods and either selling it on places like Facebook marketplace or selling it on eBay or even opening up Amazon stores and reselling those kinds of things, and right now with the economy right now with the disparity that's going on in our world. We're told it could get worse for both retail and for the retail public, and that's scary.

"I think of banking and finance is a good way includes the will becoming more transactional. Yeah when when. I grew up my mom and dad to go into the bank of reweight. Bank the patriot. Yo by that used to have to go to the bank every week. Get cash Yet this year that's long gone as many generations of technology that that have come along but is the bank managing you every single one of the customers by nice again Over time your so. We go through numerous now to the point where we'll right now and it what's happened in the code will in many parts of the world was young pool with you know seeing some of our big banking clients on a regular devices and people thought that pre cover that they had pretty high penetration rights of iran on smartphones. But guess what they went through the roof last year could banks because all of a sudden the banking completely Spliced retail bank The the the that that evolving competitive sh- paradigm shift between the banks and the digital banks and the traditional banks. We saw we actually is to become a stop become one So net will you. People have stopped yemen. This was something. I your head really thought about to be honest but i still into co own australian bank couple of weeks ago and Cash handling has plummeted one of the big reasons to have a retail retail branch which is cash handling a type of people. Don't wanna handle keishi anymore aside. We've move money as become eletronic Yeah and look. I obviously haven't traveled use the last twelve months. I mean in the in the us. Yo you can't go anywhere without a dollar bill but but literally The amount of cash physical cash in circulation this changing so these signs of some of the macro trends that again to emerge for of banking for retailing The consumer good as we stopped move forward into the future. I think of the rise of e-trade is an interesting example. Here before e-trade came up no one would think about buying stocks without a broker with. They had a personal relationship with charles. Schwab was popular. But you would call somebody place the order for you and what we see now is stock trading. There is no human behind it made if we look. Robin hood is sorta z. A perfect example of the next phase of that but you know obviously two generations past banking since then obviously with the kick in the pants from ed even accelerated that process which has been underway for twenty years. But i think you're drawing an interesting thesis here that every industry is going towards that same evolution. It's just the question is how far behind banking are they. Are they right behind banking and that they're going to this more high transactional relationship versus high relational interaction or are they. Are they a few years. Do they have a little time before. That really takes. Hold look I think every industry is every industry is having to think in in the in the world we live in today is having to figure out how mun digital impacts every aspect of business. Today i mean with me ultimately. We are in enterprise software. We sell solutions to begin prize. But i've got a. I've got a lad sales organization in the us and that that now selling to Yeah the now selling to Your c. level executives in big corporations Your enterprise selling young for my whole career has been about face to face interaction and building a relationship of this was a huge paradigm shift for you know for the industry And even in a business to business sick that the implications of digital the will we live in a having a real life impact on a day-to-day vice already You will learn about the efficiencies of being able to conduct more business.

Wet Notes - 9-27-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for monday. September twenty seventh two thousand and twenty one first up. I want to congratulate tech clark and a dive locker. Podcast on celebrating the second anniversary for those who don't know about this. Podcast tech. Started this to help die professionals with various topics and techniques. But it's not just for dive professionals. I remember listening to the first episode. Way back in two thousand nineteen just before dima that year i've come to look forward to each weekly episode tech plans to keep the show going and has teed up a lot of great new content for the year year ahead. So i'd encourage you to check out the dive locker podcast. There's a lot of great information and perspective on things that hopefully will give you something to think about. Scuba shack is a proud patron of the dive locker. By the way tech also hosts a podcast titled the league of extraordinary divers. Where you can listen to some of the giants of our industry. Great job tech. Keep it coming now. I don't know what it is. But i seem to be a sucker for a message in a bottle story. So here's another one this time. The story involves a bottle that was washed up on the shores of the big island of hawaii. The bottle started his journey thirty seven years ago from japan and it was put in the water by school children. As part of an experiment in monitoring ocean currents the number of bottles were cast into the ocean in nineteen eighty-four from choshi highschool hawaii's about six thousand kilometers or four thousand three hundred miles from the launch point now. The bottle was found by abbie graham while her family was visiting a beach near hilo. It is estimated that about seven hundred and fifty of these bottles were tossed into the ocean between nineteen eighty four and nineteen eighty five. The last time one was found was in two thousand and two on kake. Jima island overall. The bottles have been found in seventeen. Different locations including okinawa the philippines china and even the west coast of the united states. I just get fascinated by these stories and often wonder just how many messages in bottles are out there in the ocean now. Last week we got an email from the clearly clearly came in resorts and it wasn't good. News clearly came in resorts include cobalt coast on grand cayman. Little came beach resort and cayman. Brac beach resort. The news informed us that the cayman borders will remain closed until two thousand twenty two. Now that's tough at a recent press conference to premier indicated that phase. Three of the original plan will start sometime. In february given the rise in cove in nineteen cases the resorts are now planning on opening on february. Fifth two thousand twenty two. Now this has been a really tough situation. If you remember way back in april i reported that the plan was to open in late april or early may two thousand and twenty one. It's been a long and difficult road for a lot of places. Surely the caymans are feeling abroad. We hope it gets resolved before october. Twenty twenty two trip yet. That on certain there's been a great deal of communication coming from tom. Ingram the president and ceo of dima the dive equipment marketing association regarding the two thousand twenty one show in las vegas. Tom unequivocal be states. That the show has absolutely no plans. Of cancelling now they did indicate that accordance with the local health mandates. Everyone will be required to wear a mask on the exhibit floor. There are several large past exhibitors. Who are forgoing the show this year causing some to question whether it should even take place. I know we've been getting a lot of surveys from our vendors as to whether we plan to go or not right now matt and i will be there. Tom indicated that it would be extremely difficult to cancel at this late date. Given the contracts that are in place and that if it were cancelled it would seriously impact demon's ability to put on these shows in the future. So we're looking forward to a successful show this year out in las vegas and finally today. I wanna talk about a piece of underwater camera gear that you might just want to consider. There was an article from sport diver magazine by john widow titled great camera accessories for underwater photography. It was a scuba lab review of the products that the staff took diving at alexander springs in central florida. First on the list was a sea life. Sport diver smartphone housing. Now that's pretty cool. I can remember my first. Underwater camera was sealife. Reef master with a whopping three mega pixels now. This housing will fit a number of iphones and android smartphones. The housing is bluetooth enabled and his rate it to one hundred and thirty feet. The sea life sport diver smartphone. Housing comes with a vacuum seal and duly alarms when you purchase the housing. You'll get a free app that will give you access to most of your phones. Usual camera functions also included is a red filter. And if that's not enough to housing allows you to put in those sealife life color changing moisture. Munchers he i remember those now. The housing isn't cheap. It retails for two hundred ninety nine dollars and ninety five cents. Us but if you wanna travel light and still get some great underwater shots of your adventures check out the c. Life sport diver smartphone housing at sea. Life fash cameras dot com. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on scuba shack radio.

Other day, we ordered something from lows that wasn't available in the stores, but I figured instead of actually paying for shipping. I'd have it shipped to the store, save the shipping. I could do the order pickup process. Now, of course, I could call in right when I get there and tell them I'm sitting there waiting in the parking lot in the pickup spot and they'll come deliver it to me. But I always like to go inside just to make sure I'm glad I did because it took them 20 minutes to find what I was looking for. Because it wasn't with all the other orders for pickup.

What Is the Value of a College Degree?

"Hi brian. Thanks for coming on the newsworthy fisher. I appreciate it. So i let me just ask. What's your take on the value of a college degree in today's world. Shoot we wanna value in having that college degree but when it comes to employment and job opportunities in some ways it's becoming less valuable because of how competitive the labor market is become as you look up and down the labor market from not just hourly employees retail employees but salaried up and down the continuum what companies are finding is that there's not enough people for all of the jobs that they want to hire for so one. They're relaxing a lot of the historical constraints that they've had on the jobs that they're hiring for and that includes things like previous experience educational certifications and different degrees. That people have had so a lot of companies in particular across the last two or three years have been relaxing many of those constraints. The other thing that's going on is that for people that might have some of those degrees or experiences or whatever it may be. They're also able to ask for more money in the labor market so the other reason why companies are expanding their horizon of who to hire. Is that for people without college degrees. They're able to find that job and they're willing to extend an offer them. But perhaps at a slightly lower compensation level than people who do have a college degree

There's still sanitation stations because those are mandated people wearing masks are fighting. Some people were fighting wearing masks really ugly in some stores on. The point where in Illinois, our governor has come out and said. It's a felony if you harass a retail person who asked you to put on your mask. Felony is. City. Because we have the government has said you must wear masks in stool, but the store operators whether they're being told decided, they do not enforce it.

And I couldn't make it work on my phone but this card on the table when I sat down I couldn't make it work so I didn't use it and there was no follow up on the track and trace Remind. You know. Yeah. Can we stop there because track and trace to? That's something that's unique to most countries except the United States right now again, we're just so. We're the richest country in the world and we can't do simple things like apple and google basically set up for everybody to be able to do so. Creeping thing in.

So you have to, you have to do that and and while most will check and sometimes even going through the more insight specific shops they will. They will try of course, some more stringent than others some even take temperature but you will have to scan in for sure. It's interesting because we don't have that as a country. I think there's the problem is here 'cause like how how it presented for you and you forgot your mouth not accusatory there's no there's nothing behind the accusation it's not an accusation. It's just a reminder here it's been so politicized and it is such Whole arising. Wearing a mask, it's so silly because it literally has nothing to do with politics, but we've made it everything to do with politics. That starts up top unfortunately for us. That I feel any preventative measure for this virus is going to be politicized like contact tracing contact tracing is. Against our liberties, our freedom founding principles of this country when in reality it's we're just trying to find out where the outbreaks are, but we have to by the.

You can't want eighty three percent of your revenue stream. Thing you know people are going to stay online all the time. But those shots needs to work with the online at the digital and the social media so that they can play a part in Ghana the days now where you will look at your physical store, measure its success by how much cash even the till because there is so much more we will do, it will dry footfall.

I guess it's easier to when you have showrooms than it is when you have to have boothroyd kind of like opening a mall. Will you can limit how many people I guess if you have a showroom you can. You probably can't accommodate all the threat you would if you were in a convention center so it's pretty easy to do a fifteen by twenty five thirty foot showroom display product. I think is brilliant.
