Long before the first round of US/China tariffs went into effect in July 2018, manufacturers have been concerned about the potential impact the tariffs could have upon operations and profitability. With additional tariff increases scheduled for early 2019, manufacturers have been focused upon the development and implementation of counteractive measures.

The EWA webinar will provide an overview of the challenges companies are facing due to the US/China tariffs and present a variety of innovative counteractive strategies, which can enable companies to mitigate the impact of the US/China tariffs. Additionally, EWA will provide Case Studies to outline how these strategies are implemented.

  2. Make vs. Buy Evaluations
