Time to Rebuild: COVID-19 Supply Chain Wake-Up Call Webinar

May 11, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:15 pm

IMEC Webinars

COVID-19 has revealed deadly shortages of medical products due to 90 to 95% dependence on imports, especially from China.

Government and companies are scrambling to implement short-term emergency assembly and create domestic sources for critical imported components. Similar dependence is true in many key industry sectors including defense material.

It is now clear: shorter supply chains are stronger, more competitive supply chains. Reshoring – producing in the market, especially when the home market is the U.S. – can create shorter lead times with higher product quality and consistency.

This session will demonstrate that shorter supply chains are more profitable for OEM and supplier for 20 to 40% of products. Tools to identify the 20 to 40% will be provided.
