In the face of increasing supply, demand and financial volatility, supply chain cost management is crucial in supporting corporate objectives. In fact, typically, 50%–75% of the corporate cost of doing business is directly influenceable by supply chain costs.

While C-suite leaders look to manage margins and enhance liquidity in times of crisis, it is critical to trim supply chain costs in ways that don’t compromise future growth and reduce enterprise agility.

In this webcast, we will discuss:

  • How to drive sustainable supply chain cost reduction in areas such as portfolio management, sourcing, footprint strategy and more
  • How COVID-19 is impacting business leaders' outlook, operations and capital strategies
  • Methods to make your supply chain more efficient in terms of taxes, duties and tariffs
  • How to gauge the P&L impacts and trade-offs of cost reduction in various areas of the supply chain
  • Ways to take a structured approach — including now, next, and beyond — to rapid and sustainable cost reduction
