Managing Compliance During Periods of Significant Supply Chain Disruption

Presented by Victor Engesser, RVCF Retail Executive Advisor on Tuesday, November 10th.

Free Webinar Open to Retailers and Suppliers: Register Now

Earlier this year, COVID-19 impacted every retailer and supplier relationship with the broadest supply chain disruption many have ever faced. Many retailers supported their supplier community by collaborating closely to navigate through this pandemic that closed both factories and stores by "pausing" their compliance chargeback programs. To better understand how well this worked RVCF surveys sent out to both retailers and suppliers over the last 60 days captured insights from trading partners around how compliance was handled and how decisions were made, communicated, and managed as supply chains worked to recover. 

This webinar is designed to help you better understand how compliance programs have been affected by this and other past supply chain disruptions and will help RVCF inform the industry how compliance decisions are made and how compliance management is currently affecting both retailer and suppliers relationships.
