Video descriptionIncreases in production costs in some parts of Asia, continual increases in freight costs, heightened government regulations, and trade restrictions are some examples of underlying forces that prevent companies from fully understanding the true costs of their products as well as the complexity in the logistics processes required to ship products within Asia. The growth of the Asia region has resulted in major shifts in customer demand, and executives want to know how they should restructure their production and distribution networks, how much logistics outsourcing is necessary, and what new innovations are required to further develop logistics capabilities so that they can navigate the region's increasingly complex supply chain systems, and succeed in Asia. In this HBR webinar, Supply chain thought leaders Hau Lee, Tom Linton, Jonathan Wright, and Kerry Mok discuss strategies for navigating Asia's supply chain.
