For more than two years, businesses and consumers alike have experienced the effects of bottlenecks and constraints in global supply chains. This has challenged Canadian companies working to deliver world-class goods to customers, whether they export, import, or both.

At the same time, regulatory changes mean importers and exporters alike will need to meet new compliance requirements. It’s tricky terrain to navigate for anyone trying to build or grow a global business.

On July 19, Globe and Mail Senior Business Writer and Columnist, Rita Trichur, hosted a webcast featuring stories and advice from Canadian business leaders with direct experience navigating supply chain challenges.
