Logistics of Global Outsourcing - David Jacoby

Logistics of Global Outsourcing

by David Jacoby, C.P.M., CPIM, CIRM, CTL

Mr. Jacoby will offer a five-step approach for successfully integrating logistical considerations such as the availability, cost, and service of transportation and logistics services, into offshore sourcing decisions. The presentation, which will focus on sourcing from Asia, will include unvarnished perspectives on the strengths and weaknesses of major ocean shipping lines, ports, and inland service providers, and will explain how to work with agents, brokers, and other intermediaries to achieve logistics service objectives without being taken for a ride. It will offer examples of success and failure in managing overseas logistics chains based on Mr. Jacoby's consulting experience, as well as tips on how to avoid inland capacity constraints.

There will be an interactive exercise based on a low-cost country with a challenging logistics environment. This session will help anyone responsible for low-cost country sourcing make better overseas sourcing decisions and establish logistics as a competitive strength and avoid pitfalls and crises.
