What happens when the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic dies down, and the world goes back to normal?
But, it’s a New Normal, with new ways of doing business and enhanced ways of connecting with customers.
How do companies prepare for economic volatility? What is the future of trade relations with other countries? And, how does sustainability play into a pandemic?
Find out how the supply chain and logistics industry navigates business and operations during a global pandemic in our next Supply Chain Network (SCN) Summit series, scheduled for July 28.
The SCN Summit is a premier virtual event educating logistics professionals on critical issues impacting the supply chain industry. It’s not a typical webinar series. These are live, video discussions led by very selective industry experts who deliver quality content to our readers. The presentations/discussions are done through zoom, which enables registrants the opportunity to chat directly with the speakers and each other.
What’s more is, one registration gives you access to all four sessions!
Here’s the lineup of speakers and topics for the July 28 session.
