The Covid-19 pandemic has put the nature of global supply chains into sharp relief. Free and open movement of goods and services is a fine principle but one that’s loaded with risk, and that risk is accentuated at every stage when there is reliance on people. In this webinar, Professor Richard Wilding OBE, Professor of Supply Chain Strategy Logistics, Procurement and Supply Chain Management, Cranfield School of Management, will highlight how shorter, simpler supply chains, with resilience as the priority, have become imperative.
