The tragic outbreak of the coronavirus in China is a harsh reminder of the fragile nature of supply chains, and the absolute need for those supply chains to be both robust and agile. The coronavirus is not the first major supply chain disruption and it won’t be the last, but what are the visible and hidden costs of disruption to the businesses whose supply chains are affected. Traditional supply chains are horribly outdated and no longer fit for purpose. A new digitally-first solution is desperately needed.

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • The costs of supply chain disruption and unpredictability
  • How to reduce and mitigate supply chain risk
  • How to create a more agile and robust supply chain
