Three Auburn University supply chain professors are available to discuss ideas that industries can use to reduce the costs of tariffs. They can speak on:

  • Maxing out the cargo containers.

  • Diversifying the structure of the supply base to bypass the tariff.

  • Maintaining profit margins by the passing on the increased costs to the consumer.

  • Re-shoring business operations.

More information is available online.
