AASA webinars to tackle supplier challenges

The supply chain is going through some tough times these days and a series of webinars from the supplier association will look at helping to alleviate concerns.

A new six-part series from the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) starts Aug. 4 at 11 a.m. as the industry rebounds from the effects of COVID-19’s disruption. It will focus on the most critical aspects of disruption in the supply chain, the association said in an announcement.

Topics to be covered include: logistics, transportation, shipping, freight, sourcing and labour solutions. The group said it will be the first event to focus specifically on the supply chain in the automotive aftermarket.

Sessions scheduled are:

While the sessions will be held live, they will also be available on-demand following each event.

Registrants will have access to the series as an entire package — when purchasing access to one webinar, attendees gain access to the entire series. Registration will also include two roundtable discussions for a deeper dive around these popular demand topics, AASA said.

Sessions will be an hour each.
