At the end of 2016, Forbes published an article by Steve Banker identifying supply chain trends to follow in 2017. Now, halfway through 2017, OWIT International‘s supply chain experts will discuss some of these trends, including President Donald Trump’s trade agenda, the “Made in America” supply chain, how e-commerce is or is not reshaping the face of logistics, and automation reducing logistics employees. Join us as we discuss which of these trends are coming to pass, how they are likely to affect trade and business, and what to do about them.
