Join Tradeshift at our Digital Leadership Circle in Stockholm
The Quest for Supply Chain Resilience: Compliance & Risk
When it comes to today’s vast and complex supply chains, the potential for disruption is greater than it has ever been. Companies that manage this risk, and are able to best weather the resultant impacts, accrue significant competitive advantage that often translate to bottom line corporate earnings. Increasingly, supply chain leaders are leveraging digital technology to most effectively manage their supply chains and the component of risk.
In this new series of workshops, Tradeshift and its partners will focus on key supply chain flows (product, financials, data) and how their ecosystem of Apps is enabling supply chains to develop greater “resiliency” and by default, competitive advantage.
