Critical Priorities: Shaping the Present, Futureproofing your Supply Chain by Prioritizing Resilience

29th March 2022, 13:00 – 14:30 CET

2021 has left your Supply Chain under pressure and in complete and utter chaos. Shipping costs and freight rates are soaring. Soaring freight rates, cargo container shortages, and port congestion have driven up shipping costs. Lead times have extended far out, they are unknown. Value chains have become substantially more challenging to manage. Longer and increasingly interlinked physical flows reflect the rising complexity of product portfolios. Market volatility, which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, has elevated the need for agility and flexibility. 

As a result, companies and stakeholders have become more focused on supply-chain resilience. Supply chains are managing a new pace of strategy development. Supply Chain leaders need the appropriate methodology to translate business objectives, customer needs, trends, and disruptions into a vision that is aligned to the corporate strategic direction.

Seize this opportunity to garner masterful insights and put yourself on track to becoming a supply chain leader of the future through meticulous discussions on the most successful resilience strategies and technologies there are.
