During these difficult times global businesses must streamline and protect their supply chain operations, manage new sourcing, navigate border issues, keep abreast of rapidly changing regulations, and deal with contract disputes.

- How have recent U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) staffing and operational changes impacted importers?
- Update on CBP’s COVID-19 response and enforcement trends.
- Impact of foreign, federal, state and local orders on the supply chain and addressing remote working challenges.
