You're invited to our webinar 'Weightmans Evolve: Practical implications for the supply chain post COVID-19'
In this webinar we will be focusing on the legal and practical steps businesses can take to adapt to change and mitigate risks when adapting to new ways of working. We are looking forward to discussing these with you and together, helping navigate the supply chain of the future.
Following the launch last year of the Weightmans Evolve: Future of the supply chain campaign, we have continued to work with our clients and wider industry bodies to provide insight on the many areas of the law and business processes which make up the modern supply chain.
Needless to say, that need has become more acute as the UK and other countries has entered lockdown as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Whilst the findings of our original supply chain report corroborated our belief that the more ‘traditional’ issues faced by industry i.e. fuel costs, increasing consumer demand, reduction in delivery time, shortage of workers and rising property costs, were still issues that the supply chain had to deal with, our panel event was particularly enlightening as to new issues which were coming to light – both as opportunities and threats.
At the end of 2019 some of those issues seemed nebulous, distinct from the very real and existential issue now faced by some as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
As companies adjust to the ‘new normal’ we now need to look to the future. It is undeniable that the current situation will bring long term change. What we are seeing, terrible though some of it may be, will accelerate that change.
