    Supply chains are constantly at risk, and problems can cause serious harm to exporters. You need to know the risks you can predict, those you can't, and how to secure against all of them. 

    Engaging with attendees, the discussion will cover: 

    • Black Swan events: how to ensure unforeseen events don’t disrupt your supply chain. 

    • Past is prologue: old solutions to modern problems. 

    • The limits (and utilities) of supply chain risk management tools. 

    • Why taking smaller risks to protect against greater ones is vital knowledge that's too rare to ignore. 

    • Protection against bad debt: assessing international credit risks while forging supply chain safeguards. 

    • Simplification: saving time and money. Complexity is not always beneficial. 

    As an attendee, whether you're already exporting or considering it, you'll emerge from this session with essential, often overlooked methods that will sustain and grow your supply chain, and boost your firm's productivity.

    AMPI is an industry led initiative to stimulate and support rapid growth of the UK’s machinery manufacturing sector, designed to support a coherent supply chain from research through to implementation.   

    This interactive workshop session will examine the challenges, barriers, and enablers to developing a UK supply chain for advanced machinery.  

    The session will incorporate a road mapping group exercise, which will develop machinery roadmaps to influence R&D portfolios.

    Managing VAT and Customs obligations is a necessary action all manufacturers need to undertake.  Since Brexit the impact of taxes, duties and other reporting obligations has expanded to be relevant to all cross border movements of goods.  Crowe UK will share its experience and expertise to help you with: 

    • Key points to check and understand before moving goods 

    • Ways to optimise cash flow impacts and overall costs 

    • News on current and upcoming changes to be aware of

    • With the EU implementing carbon border adjustment mechanisms, the UK is expected to implement a similar system to prevent carbon leakage. This has the potential to have a significant impact on manufacturing.  This session will discuss how manufacturers can prepare to track the carbon footprint of certain input materials, such as steel and aluminium. 

    • The EU is working on an LCA framework for the automotive industry lca4tran (lca4transport.eu), expected to be completed in 2025. The expectation is that the carbon accounting seen in the battery regulation will be rolled out across the entire vehicle. While clarity on LCA is welcome, carrying out LCA across an entire supply chain comes with significant challenges.  We will discuss the positive and negative impacts of CBAM in Europe and UK.
