It is now clear: shorter supply chains are stronger, more competitive supply chains for the country. In the third webinar in this series, Harry will, in detail, demonstrate how to convince your customers that they will be more profitable buying from you 20 to 40% of products they now import. Tools to help your customers decide. Results of numerous studies showing that the tools work. Examples of job shops that helped OEMs reshore.
Primary topics include how to identify the companies that import what you make competitively, how to help the customer quantify the costs and risks of offshoring, how to convince companies to reshore and buy from you, and how to market reshoring.
Registration includes live and on-demand access to all Smarter Sourcing Series webinars (a registration code will be sent with your registration confirmation), exclusive Reshoring Initiative resources and proceeds from will support the Reshoring Initiative.
