COVID-19 has revealed deadly shortages of medical products due to 90 to 95% dependence on imports, especially from China. Legislation has been introduced to reward or mandate reshoring. Similar dependence is true in many key industry sectors including defense materiel. It is now clear: shorter supply chains are stronger, more competitive supply chains for the country. In the second webinar in this series, Harry will, in detail, demonstrate that shorter supply chains are also more profitable for OEMs for 20 to 40% of products. Tools to identify the 20 to 40% will be provided. Results of numerous studies showing that the tools work. Examples of OEMs that reshored and why.
Primary Topics include how to identify the products most eligible to reshore, how to quantify the costs and risks of offshoring, why companies reshore and the importance of eliminating silos.
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.
