Mike Hockett, managing editor at Industrial Distribution, joins our first episode of the new year to share findings from the publisher’s recent 2020 survey and talk about what lies ahead for industrial distributors in 2021. Listen to hear about the surprising cost-cutting measure distributors have undertaken during the pandemic and why many had a digital wake-up call in 2020. Mike and host Lindsay Duran also project the most in-demand product categories in 2021 and tackle the big question: to compete with or partner with Amazon Business?
