Supply Chain Disruption: Look Ahead

Supply Chain Disruption: The need for advance planning & agility in supply chain management – thinking ahead to the next major crisis. Join us for a discussion about what needs to change in global supply chain planning to prepare effectively for the next global crisis; whatever it maybe – financial, health or climate related.

In this 60-minute webinar (including ample time for attendee questions), our panelists will take a close look at the dynamics of supply in the pandemic aftermath:

* Overview of global trade developments: global trade volumes back to pre-pandemic levels but shipping and supply chains are disrupted for a longer term. What is the current state of lead indicators and where are we in the commodities cycle? [we will use the ISM Manufacturing Report as a source, among other recent sources]

* Outlook for shipping: Are pressures easing? What about freight rates? Effects on inventory restocking in the US? * Trade outlook: Latest economic and trade forecasts & long-term trade forecasts for key countries.

* Regulatory changes in EU and US and how they effect supply chain

* Trade policy challenges: US-China trade tensions, tariffs, Brexit etc.

* Trade opportunities via new trade deals: what EU trade deals are interesting, how are the UK trade agreements developing

* Risk mitigation strategies for businesses: Nearshoring/reshoring, market diversification, vertical integration, digitisation
