AAPEX WEBINAR: Reducing Risk and Spend in the Global Supply Chain: Challenges & Opportunities in Import and Export


The cost of moving goods internationally, foreign sourcing and export sales have significantly increased through the Covid pandemic. Tied into this is the disruption in global supply chains in sourcing, delays and freight costs.

This seminar will frame the issues followed by recommendations and best practices with a thought leader with over 40 years' experience in international business.

Additionally, we will review the Biden Administration and its anticipated impact as it relates to companies with global footprints.

Learner outcomes:

  • Understand the state of global sourcing and a range of options to reduce landed costs
  • Utilizing government resources to develop foreign sales and overseas business development (speaker is a partner with the Department of Commerce in Washington, DC)
  • Reducing risk and spend in the global supply chain. Action-oriented recommendations for both short term and long term decisions and short term and long term investments. For example, consolidating freight is a short term option whereas alternate sourcing such as moving out of China is long-term, almost generational.
