Nearshoring Supply Chain: disruptions and the role of AI

In an era where companies navigate through the maze of geopolitical uncertainties, ambitious sustainability targets like Net Zero 2030, economic downturns, ever-evolving customer preferences, exploding data volumes, and rapid technological leaps — with each challenge seemingly existing in its own silo — executives are in a relentless pursuit of the holy grail: Efficiency, Agility, Resilience, and Sustainability. This quest demands not just strategies of near/re-shoring to emerge as pivotal to building more sustainable supply chains but integrated, scalable, and user-friendly solutions. Artificial Intelligence (AI) stands out as a transformative force in redefining these strategies, addressing supply chain disruptions, and supporting the supply network re-design and optimization, but how? That’s what we will be exploring in this talk.


  • Examine the impact of supply chain disruptions and the trend towards diversified supply bases.

  • Understand the role of AI in enhancing the sustainability of supply chains through near/re-shoring strategies.

  • Enablers and requirements to implement near/re-shoring in EMEA.

  • Gain insights into the latest AI trends and successful practices that are reshaping supply chain management.

  • Learn strategic approaches for guiding your organization through the challenges and opportunities of near/re-shoring, with a focus on sustainability and AI-driven transformation.
