Supply Chain Special: Unravelling Geopolitics, Reshoring, Digital Transformation and More

Wondering how the shifting sands of geopolitics affect the business of supply chain logistics and pricing? Dive into this illuminating discussion that unearths the intricate dynamics between the two, with a particular lens on the issues in Israel and their impact. We uncover the ripple effects this has on businesses who are now being nudged towards reshoring and regionalizing their supply chains. As we navigate this complex terrain, we shine a light on the changing customer expectations, where they are not just interested in the finished product, but also the origins of their major parts and sub-assemblies.

In the second round of our discussion, we shift gears and steer towards artificial intelligence and its potential as an advisory or co-pilot tool for logistics and supply chain management. We dissect the importance of having the right data set to train AI and how this might be the key to navigating any repeat of the recent component shortages. We also scrutinize the reshoring trend in North America and the increasing demand for higher volume production runs in Mexico. As we approach the finish, we look to the future, contemplating the potential impact of the next big disruption. Buckle up and join us on this enlightening journey.
