Harry Moser, founder of the Reshoring Initiative

Gardner Business Media is releasing a webinar series for anyone working in manufacturing, in partnership with the Reshoring Initiative and Harry Moser. In the first webinar, Harry will demonstrate that shorter supply chains are also more profitable for OEM and supplier for 20 to 40% of products. Tools to identify the 20 to 40% will be provided.

The fist webinar takes place Wednesday, April 29 at 2 p.m. EDT. Click here to register. 

Each webinar in the four-part series will deliver real data, proven strategies and successful use cases that will empower procurement professionals to shorten and strengthen their supply chain by sourcing parts and services locally.

A portion of the registration cost will go towards supporting the Reshoring Initiative.

Primary topics include:

  • Reshoring is profitable for 20-40% of what you and your customers now import
  • How to identify the products most eligible to reshore
  • How to quantify the costs and risks of offshoring
  • How to convince companies to reshore and buy from you
