Trends in supply chain management – opportunities for Czech Republic? - LINK -
Since 2000, the value of goods traded globally has tripled to more than €10 trillion annually. Businesses that successfully implemented a lean, global model of manufacturing achieved improvements in inventory levels, on-time-in-full deliveries, and shorter lead times.
However, intricate production networks were designed for efficiency, cost, and proximity to markets but not necessarily for transparency or resilience. Recent trade tensions and now the COVID‑19 pandemic have led to speculation that companies could shift to more domestic production and regional sourcing.
The Nordic Chamber’s Supply Chain seminars will exemplify how some of our members approach their production and value chains. Each seminar will cover one or more aspect that is relevant.
Combined, we hope to cover a large section of the issues companies are facing and how they approach their particular situation.
Hopefully, we will also be able to identify some opportunities for Czech companies.
