How will you prepare?  Are you ready for the new global supply chain evolution?

Manufacturing is essential to rebuilding our middle class and our economy. It’s important for our future and our children’s future. It’s bi-partisan and is on every politician’s agenda to support jobs growth. In fact, according to a recent study, 54 percent of U.S. manufacturers over $1billion in revenue are considering reshoring some or all of their manufacturing. Indeed, Reshoring will have a significant effect on global procurement, logistics, trade, and manufacturing strategies.  

Yet, despite the appetite and support, reshoring is not as easy and you may think. It requires strategy, planning, and a commitment to invest in rebalancing your global supply chain. How will you prepare for this coming evolution? Are you ready? 

Attendees of this session will learn:

  • why reshoring is important now;
  • how to compare cost points with Chinese manufacturing;
  • the effect on global supply chains; and
  • what you can do to support reshoring.
