Companies had to quickly adapt in 2020 to a new norm that the pandemic and changing consumer demands brought. In Asia for many manufacturers and logistics providers it has continued long into 2021 as international borders remained difficult to navigate. Advanced data analytics can help forecast global trade impacts of future disruptive events and help to mitigate supply chain risks but what are companies actually doing to mitigate the ongoing port hold-ups. Is it forcing a greater collaboration effort between traditional rival firms to enforce change?

In conversation with some of our members, we found that they are no longer in survival mode and are past the short-term business continuity and mitigation solutions imposed in 2020 and first half of 2021. So, what are sourcing, suppliers and manufacturers focused on when it comes to their supply chains as we head towards 2022?

What role if any does an industrial park providers play in future post pandemic and lockdowns, to retain the confidence of its tenants in managing risks to staff and supplies?

Experts sourcing in APAC, to logistics providers discuss the geopolitical challenges and the grey lines of crossing latest national security laws, quarantine measures or trade tariffs as a more complex digital trading world emerges from this pandemic and where they see they need future support on as an industry.
