It’s 2020 -- and trade, tariff, compliance and volatility issues haven’t gone away.
Disruption is the new normal in the supply chain as the electronics industry reassess its relationship with China. The global coronavirus outbreak has only added to the uncertainty left over from 2019. Component information such as origin, trade/tariff classification, availability and authenticity must be shared across the supply chain.
But what’s the best way to collect and analyze such information? How can it be used to avoid risk? And what data is “actionable?”
Join SiliconExpert as we discuss the information that’s most important to your business; how it can benefit your partnerships and why visibility is key to managing ongoing supply disruption. Even if one issue – such as tariffs – abates, another challenge is already in the works.
