Understand Where the U.S. Supply Chain Infrastructure Really Stands and the Impact of the Current Scenario and Government Interests on Your Business.

The supply chain infrastructure is more diverse and complex than generally understood, with elements of equivalents to hardware, software, and middleware.

The physical infrastructure’s condition varies, and is dependent on different entities and funding sources for construction and maintenance.

Critical core infrastructure components are impeding excellence and the continuous improvement of the supply chain performance, as well as global competitiveness. For decades, planning and implementation for infrastructure modernization have been fragmented and disconnected. One thing is clear; the U.S. needs comprehensive and integrated infrastructure planning and investment.

Governmental awareness of the requirement is building, and serious initiatives are in the offing – perhaps. Still, the obstacles and challenges associated with a holistic solution are significant.  Future success depends on a thorough awareness and understanding of the possibilities, probabilities, and pitfalls of presently proposed solutions.

In this webinar, expert Art van Bodegraven will do an in-depth analysis of these challenges and a forward-looking analysis of legislative trends. Art will look into the current state and future predictions of various supply chain infrastructures from Highways, Railways, and Roads to Energy and Pipeline Infrastructure.  You will get an in-depth understanding of the challenges faced by the U.S. Supply Chain Infrastructure and its future prospects.
