Episode #30, The Freight State with Doug Punzel from Celtic Intermodal

In the February/March issue of SpaRetailer, we outlined how the trucker shortage was impacting hot tub retailers. This week on The SpaRetailer Podcast we talk to a transportation expert about some of the issues facing that industry. Doug Punzel, president of Celtic Intermodal, has worked for more than three decades in transportation. Celtic also happens to be the intermodal company that co-host Jeff uses to ship his hot tubs from southern California to his stores in Philadelphia.
