domestic supply chain summit

With the lasting impacts of the pandemic, geopolitical developments such as Brexit and U.S.-China relations, trade agreements like USMCA, import/export restrictions and so much more that has happened in the last year, it may be some time before the supply chain is back to normal. But, with much of the past year’s uncertainty behind us, it’s time to focus on navigating the supply chains of the future. Join us as we explore how to make disruptions a thing of the past and look at emerging trends and data to show what we can expect.
