Supply chains are recovering from the ravages of the pandemic, but the outlook is far from rosy. Join Panjiva’s research experts as they consider the challenges and risks for supply chains in the remainder of 2021. Topics will include:
- The fallout from weak planning - The path to a post-COVID economy runs through vaccine supply chains. They remain complex, beset by regulations and short of critical supplies. We’ll examine the current state of affairs and prospects for improvement.
- The fallout from poor investment – Logistics congestion is acting as a deadweight on economic recovery and adding to elevated cost inflation. The challenges originally faced only by U.S. ports are being felt elsewhere. We’ll consider what can be done to turn this around.
- The fallout from short-termism – Corporate supply chain risk management has been hobbled by short-term planning horizons. Thus far corporations appear to have focused on inflation management and backup parts sourcing rather than root-and-branch reviews of their supply chains.
- The fallout from rivalry – The Biden administration has built a coalition to tackle China’s economic practices. At the same time many large economies are rolling out new state industrial policies in competition with each other. We unpack how we got here, what might happen next and how supply chain are reacting.
