Topic: Designing the Supply Chain of the future

Description: Join Llamasoft to discuss what supply chain designers in Europe will be looking at in the coming years, given the changing worldwide economic and political scene, how should you gear up to answer the key questions facing your business. Exchange insights on the effects of Economic Nationalism. Single market and Customs Union. What will the trade and the movement of people and goods look in Europe in two or three years' time? Utilise this opportunity to share ideas and explore possible outcomes in a relaxed environment.

In this session we discuss the following:

  • The implications of Brexit and US President Trump's intentions to renegotiate NAFTA will lead to new tariffs and standards, creating new challenges for supply chain leaders
  • The events in the UK and at the the US are just two of forms of "economic nationalism" that should give every business with cross-border interests many reasons to reconsider its supply chain operations, what factors should you be thinking about to be ready face this periods of uncertainty and change
