About this Event

The one-two punch of the trade war and the pandemic have put supply chains under the microscope. And what’s been revealed are the vulnerabilities inherent in long, opaque operations, especially during a crisis. To build in resilience, sourcing managers are increasingly looking closer to home. But realizing the benefits of localizing supply chains is about more than just geography. It takes visibility into inputs, automation and the ability to deliver only the goods consumers actually want to achieve lower cost of goods sold and better margins.

 

Join Sourcing Journal on February 17 at 2 pm ET for a discussion about how to de-risk supply chains through nearshoring and onshoring.

 

The discussion will focus on:

  • the hidden costs of overseas production
  • the tech innovations that have made localizing production cost effective
  • how a shorter supply chain translates into less inventory
  • why you need to prepare to weather the next crisis now

 

Speakers:

  • Craig Harris, Industry Principal for the Apparel, Footwear and Accessories Group, NetSuite
  • Marianne Webber, CEO & Director of Product Development & Production, Quick Turn Clothing
  • Ari Jogiel, founder & CEO, Ari Jogiel
  • Edward Hertzman, President, Sourcing Journal (moderator)
