Webinar: Looking Beyond COVID-19 Rethinking your Supply Chain

June 19, 2020

Watch the webinar now, as our panel of supply chain experts address the effects of the current global pandemic, political and economic environments on the supply chain.

2020 has been a year for disruptions from trade wars and resulting tariffs, to COVID-19, to the political unrest and turmoil spreading across all 50 states. While manufacturing and distribution companies have historically focused on maintaining lower inventory levels to conserve working capital and keep costs down, sourcing goods primarily from Asia, capabilities and plans may shift as companies return to normalized operations and seek to recover losses from the challenging year.

During the webinar, our panelists also address the characteristics of the “ideal” supply chain and resulting questions, including:

  • Is the primary source Asia or a dual source of Europe and/or North America?
  • How does the U.S. prepare for automation to compete on price if sourcing and manufacturing capacity increase?
  • Which industries are the big winners?
