Tariff Resistant Supply Chain

November 5, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Tariff Resistant Supply Chains

Today’s ever-changing and uncertain tariffs have the potential to blow up your product supply chain. Supply chains are quite dynamic and nothing is “tariff proof.” However, a carefully considered supply chain strategy using a tariff resistant approach can minimize the undesirable impact caused by fluctuations and uncertainty. Join us for a dynamic and interactive panel discussion led by two long-time supply chain and tariff experts, Shirish Joshi and Ron Keith.

At this session we will cover:

  • How a tariff resistant strategy can be beneficial
  • Risk mitigation in a complex environment
  • “Hidden costs” associated with offshoring
  • The difference between “price” and “cost”
  • Tips for protecting intellectual property

Increase your knowledge of supply chain, and gain new power to get your product to market on schedule. Learn how a strategy crafted by hands-on experts can help you leverage an alternative sourcing network.

  • Help you collaborate with new design or manufacturing partners; Assess duties and classification decisions;
  • Deal with political instability, currency fluctuation, and circus-style politics;
  • Manage risk for lead times, obsolescence, environmental compliance, natural disasters, and gray market issues.

Speakers (fireside chat format):

  • Shirish Joshi, Supply Chain Practice Lead, PRG & Founder, Amphion Solutions
  • Ron Keith, Founder & Exec. Director, Supply Chain Resources Group
