The Coronavirus pandemic has caused unprecedented levels of disruption and instability in the global and local manufacturing and supply chain.
As part of the shift, countries and local producers are struggling to maintain production and keep their supply routes open as they enter different phases of the pandemic.
In response to this, the British Retail Consortium will be hosting two webinars in a bid to help retailers better understand the current supply chain situation, both internationally and locally in the United Kingdom.
