Supply Chain Success Stories

October 3, 2022
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT
Location: Westgate: Ballroom C


I’m looking for advice from the supply chain players to better navigate the challenges facing our industry.

Product procurement throughout the supply chain was a major challenge for convenience stores and their supplier partners throughout the pandemic, and it continues to challenge our industry today. However, the challenges have led to a greater level of collaboration between convenience retailers and their suppliers: 66% of supplier companies said their overall relationship with convenience retailers is better than a year ago, and 44% said their level of partnership and collaboration with the convenience retailing channel is better than other channels. Come to this session to hear a panel discussion between retailers, a distributor and a supplier as they share their insights and success stories in overcoming supply chain challenges.


  • Reflect on the current supply chain situation and how we got here
  • List the primary causes of supply chain issues
  • Determine ways to navigate through the supply chain disruptions
  • Discuss solutions retailers can use to respond to supply chain challenges
