Futureproofing the Supply Chain: Examining Raw Material Supply

ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Talk 1:
Futureproofing the Metals Supply Chain: Availability, Price and Logistics


Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the fragility of metal raw material supply chains has been unmasked. Lockdowns, and a recent rapid recovery in consumer spending and manufacturing have led to sharp price increases, and in many cases a lack of availability. Further pressure has come from global logistics constraints and cost increases, principally on the Asia to North America and Asia to European shipping routes. Routes have seen shipping delays, shortages and a near tripling of rates over the last 12 months.

CWIEME and Breakbulk have teamed up for this joint webinar to provide you with the latest analysis of global logistics and shipping capacity, what options exist for struggling suppliers and to predict when we may see some return to normality in the global supply chain.

Talk 2:
How Secure is the Supply of Raw Materials?


With the security of raw materials supply more pertinent than ever as the world moves into the fourth industrial revolution, this session will examine the current situation regarding raw material supply security. Can it be relied upon in the short-to-medium term and even in the long term?

This session will explore innovations in battery technology, overreliance on specific materials and the localisation of the supply chain. Also discussed will be how critical is supply chain security right now? Will the current shortage of materials cause the pace of global electrification to slow down and stagnate? All of this will be disused with strict ESG principles in mind as ESG principles are paramount to the success of any future supply of materials.
