As the end of 2023 neared, Supply Chain Dive decided to explore the different ways companies have been strategically shifting their supply chains.
Our goal? Showcase how the changes in trade patterns — whether spurred by geopolitical tension or some other disruption — prompted shifts that impact every aspect of the supply chain, from logistics to procurement and everything in between.
Five deep dives we produced explore the various ways companies are strategizing to cut lead times and costs, as well as shift production away from China. The end result is a massive realigning of shipping networks.
We hope you find this specially crafted package informative as we reflect on 2023’s ups and downs, and look forward to what 2024 has to bring. While it is impossible to anticipate what happens in the future, one can always take a holistic look at overarching global trade patterns to draft strategic insight for the months to come.
