This four-part webinar series, presented by Gardner Business Media and the Reshoring Initiative, will deliver real data, proven strategies, tools and successful use cases that will enable suppliers to partner with procurement professionals to shorten and strengthen their supply chain by sourcing parts and services locally.

Of products now sourced offshore, 20 to 30% would be more profitably sourced domestically. TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is the key tool to objectively compare alternative sources to determine which items can be most profitably sourced domestically and which to offshore.

The webinar will describe how to get started: picking products to analyze; prioritizing; the importance of getting input from other departments; and how to use the online, free TCO Estimator.

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

Primary Topics:

  • How to identify the products most eligible to reshore
  • How to use the TCO Estimator
  • Avoiding silos: considering the impact on other departments and budgets
  • Examples

Your Registration Includes:

  • Live and on-demand access to all Smarter Sourcing Series webinars (a registration code will be sent with your registration confirmation)
  • Exclusive Reshoring Initiative resources
  • Proceeds from your registration will support the Reshoring Initiative
