“Managing the Supply Chain to Deliver Successful Projects”

Supply chain problems were prominent during the COVID-19 lockdown amid a “perfect storm” of causes, including shifts in demand, labor shortages and structural factors.

On February 2, a panel of supply chain leaders from an Owner (Delek Logistics), EPC (Worley) and Supplier (Endress & Hauser) will present their perspective on the supply chain issues they faced, the solutions implemented through internal and external actions, and how they see the current and future state of the supply chain. Based on their experiences, the panel will provide recommendations and practical takeaways that EPC industry participants can take to manage the supply chain and deliver successful projects.
