COVID-19 has been like an out-of-control freight train for supply chain and logistics. It has thrown off transport movements, logistics volumes and production capacity across the world.

To combat new threats and mitigate supply chain risk, experts from Walmart, Huawei and McCormick and Co. join us for a virtual roundtable:
COVID19: Supply Chain Risk Management (Sponsored by DLT Labs)

Speakers Josh Buchannan, Director, Supply Chain Design & Innovation, Walmart, Tim Danks, VP, Risk, Huawei and Loudon Owen, CEO and Chair, DLT Global and Brant Matthews, VP Global Strategic Sourcing, McCormick and Co share lessons learned on critical supply chain resilience challenges, including:

  • Assess your global sourcing model, including geographic diversification of sourcing partners, and weighing-up offshoring VS onshoring, considering expertise and material availability, production flexibility and transport costs
  • Address the need for resilience in your supply chain network design, including scenario analysis to ensure your supply chain is resilient in the face of future disruption
  • Identify opportunities to improve transparency along your supply chain to increase revenue and reduce operating costs
  • Map out your global supply chains to identify the scope for prudent choices in the selection and location of suppliers, diversifying modes and regions to de-risk your operation
  • Evaluate visibility and inventory policies, considering the cost-benefit of Just-in-Time Vs Just-in-Case manufacturing and the trade-off between system responsiveness, optionality and inventory management costs
