How Distributors Can Act Now to Mitigate Supply Chain Disruption

The supply chain continues to be stretched – and likely will be into 2023 – testing the patience of distributors and their customers as they respond to growing demand. Distributors need a plan to manage supply chain disruptions. They must take action to ensure they can sustain and even scale operations as the economy recovers. 

We asked distributors about their strategies to mitigate the impacts of supply chain uncertainty. We shared what’s working in this webinar, as well our expertise on building resiliency in your supply chain. 

In this webinar you'll learn:

  • How to measure the risk of disruption within your business
  • How to plan based on the most likely scenarios for your business
  • How to manage and recover from disruption
