The last few months have created a new focus across Australia Supply Chains, especially the reliance on imported goods and
extended supply chains. For many products the case for ‘making it here’ is being re-assessed. This is a trend that has been
underway for at least five years in North America and Europe, but COVID 19 is finally prompting a re-evaluation of Australia’s
over-reliance on international supply chains.
This interactive webinar will discuss and review the following:
- What are the considerations about where to source?
- What are the hidden costs (total) of extended Supply Chains?
- What has changed that necessitates a re-evaluation of past sourcing decisions
- What are the six steps required to successfully bring production home?
- Guidelines to help decide which inputs to source locally and which to import.
- The six steps that businesses need to take to successfully re-establish local production
- How local suppliers can position themselves to benefit from the move to local sourcing.
Attendee numbers will be limited to 30 as this will be a fully interactive workshop.
