Trade Chat: 2021 Supply Chain Outlook

Please join us on January 26th for an engaging panel discussion on the outlook for domestic and global Supply Chains in 2021. Covid-19 has greatly affected supply chains both domestic and international. We may never go back to normal, as managers have adapted to new realities that forced changes to supply chain operations. The conversation will focus on the impact that covid-19 has had on both domestic and international supply chains, the changes that companies made to their supply chains to keep operations and product flowing, what will keep supply chain managers on their toes in 2021, the reality of onshoring, and what ?normal? might look like for supply chains in 2021.

Our panelists will frame this discussion around the following points:

What supply chain disruptions/difficulties did you encounter during this past year?
​What did you learn from these disruptions/difficulties?
What permanent changes have you made to address these disruptions/difficulties?
What potential disruptions/difficulties do you anticipate for 2021?
What is your current view regarding onshoring or dual sourcing?
