“These days, supply chain strategies must no longer concentrate on the lowest-cost, single-sourced option. In the face of simultaneous globalization and deglobalization, you must redesign your supply chains to add resilience by deploying optionality – multiple alternate production, logistics and transportation solutions.”

Jim Tompkins

Founder & Chairman, Tompkins Ventures; Founder, Past Chairman, Past CEO, Tompkins International
