The recent pandemic has impacted industries around the world, making C-suites rethink and reassess the viability of their supply chain operations. Amidst the volatile conditions of demand shocks, travel restrictions, domestic and international shutdowns, the supply chains of companies are under immense pressure to be consistent and reliable. This is where one has to relook at not only their local and overseas supply chain management, but also investigate new markets and customer bases to survive in a Low Touch Economy.

A vital element of building supply chain resilience and managing disruptions is to understand key risks in supply chains by conducting periodic and disciplined risk assessments. The supply chain risk assessment can give upper management an in-depth strategy and operational view of areas of improvement. Under the risk assessment, companies will also be required to strategize and operationalize short (3 to 6 months), medium (6 to 12 months) and long term (more than 12 months) actions to build on supply chain digital capabilities.

 Additionally, it is important for companies to understand and take into consideration cross border tax implications (e.g. transfer pricing, permanent establishment, withholding tax) in supply chain planning and restructuring. Companies that are looking to redesign and restructure their supply chains can also tap on a slew of government grants and incentives to help provide financial or tax support.

This webinar will give participants a better understanding of managing disruptions and making the right decisions on building supply chain resilience through:

  • Preparing for different types of demand recovery pattern (V, U or L shape)
  • Building omni-channel supply chains
  • Increasing the digital footprint of supply chains
  • Considerations for a tax efficient supply chain
  • Available government grants to support supply chain design and restructuring

Complimentary passes are available for KPMG clients. Please reach out to your KPMG contact or events@kpmg.com.sg.

Who should attend:
This webinar is targeted at the Board of Directors and C-suites in Medium and Large SMEs and Large Corporations with significant manufacturing, warehousing and customer service operations in the Asia Pacific region. It will give them a broad understanding in managing and taking the right decisions on supply chain disruptions caused by COVID-19. Additionally, it will assist COOs, CSCOs and Supply Chain Executives across industries such as Life Sciences, High Tech, Retail, Manufacturing, Consumer Goods, etc. in planning and executing how to optimally navigate the COVID-19 global pandemic in the short and long term.
