Event Date: 11/28/2012 1:00 PM Central Standard Time
Despite media reports that tend to focus on job loss, plant closings and other negative events, the truth is that U.S manufacturing is still quite strong and provides a number of social and economic opportunities. This webinar will examine both by looking at how manufacturers can utilize a number of tools to better manage logistics, respond to distribution changes and mitigate supply chain risks.
It will also provide expert commentary on a number of large-scale supply chain solutions for U.S. manufacturers. These range from improved transportation portals to the need for developing a long-range, comprehensive national manufacturing strategy and how to work with all public and private stakeholders as the U.S. looks to improve its infrastructure and stay globally competitive.
