Sponsored by Hilco Global
Thursday, October 28, 2021| 10:15 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. 

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link—explore what’s happening with the supply chain that is currently affecting both consumer goods and industrial production. What are companies doing to mitigate these issues? This session will assess the geography of bottlenecks both in the U.S. and abroad, disentangle logistics and transportation issues from manufacturing issues, and shed light on rising costs.
