1. Fundamentals: international supply chains, trade, and production
Here we take a detailed look at contemporary supply chain thinking, strategies and concepts, and the driving political and economic forces that give shape to modern supply chains. We will also look at the impact of trade, tariff, and customs policy on supply chain arrangements. The impact of operational risks and the need for business competitiveness and resilience is discussed, too.

2. Supply chain operations

Part two takes a closer look at the operational and commercial arrangements between supply chain partners with a specific focus on their respective roles and obligations, and supporting technology and systems. Here we will also elaborate on applicable trade documents and the methods by which trade and customs-relevant data can be shared across the supply chain and with border staff.

3. Supply chain management within the context of trade and customs policy

In part three we focus on supply chain management practices with a focus on trade compliance, supply chain security, and control. We also examine the costs experienced by public and private sector actors, and how supply chain principles can be applied to achieve greater trade facilitation. In this session, we will also take a closer look at the impact that border agencies and their operations might have on supply chain management decisions and configuration.

4. Applied supply chain thinking

The master class concludes with a dedicated session on how the relationships between the public and private sectors can be applied to improving supply chain performance, and how supply chain principles and ideas are reflected in contemporary trade and customs policy at both the strategic and operational levels.
