Welcome to the 14th episode with our friend Steve Rothberg of Mercator International. He and I had a fascinating discussion about global infrastructure, both in the U.S. and abroad. We talked about ships and ports, railroads, and inland waterways. What didn't we cover? And maybe the conversation got a tiny bit wonky at times, but that's what makes this episode so compelling.
Steve is a partner with Mercator International LLC and joined us from Kirkland, Washington. Mercator is a management consulting firm specializing in freight, logistics, and infrastructure. Steve shared stories from a diverse portfolio of projects with which he has been involved.
