Preparing for Post COVID-19: How are Supply Chains Coping & What are the “New Norms”?


Join us for an essential discussion to find out how supply chains are managing their operations amidst the COVID-19 lockdowns and travel restrictions. As we deploy temporary measures and digital workarounds, these potentially expose companies to new forms of supply chain risks. While we continue to battle against the outbreak, organizations must now prepare and deploy strategies for Post-COVID operations in the event of a possible second or third wave and into what will be a fundamentally different workplace model.

In this webinar, industry experts from TAPA, BSI and TT Club will share key findings from recent reports, emerging risks, changes in consumer behaviours and mitigation strategies to ensure that organizations remain secure and resilient.
