COVID-19 accelerates the need for re-designing your (global) network of distribution and production operations. What are the post COVID-19 requirements of your customers as well as your company’s C-level? And how can you combine risk-resilience, shortening lead times and cost effectiveness? How do you make the trade-off between low costs (e.g. production in China/ Asia) versus lower supply chain risks (i.e. manufacturing in large markets in North America and Europe)? Or between short e-commerce delivery times versus higher but less vulnerable inventory levels?
To support you in your strategic reviews this webinar will give answers to the following questions:
- How can you build your risk-resilient (decentralized) supply chain?
- Are decentralizing production or re-shoring realistic options for your company?
- How can you manage your supplier base better with more advanced supplier management tools and a control tower to enhance visibility?
- How do you find the best location for your new consolidated plant/distribution center?
