To survive, they must optimize for the current environment and mitigate significant risks. “How to build a pandemic-proof global supply chain” offers insights for navigating this new landscape.

This white paper also provides information about different business models, including insourcing, outsourcing, multi-sourcing, offshoring, and nearshoring.
