When discussing supply chain resilience, Davis mentions the important conversations around the upcoming commercialization of COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics and the readiness of members to continue serving as partners in distribution of these vital products.

Further, Davis notes how HDA’s recent relocation to Washington, D.C., will help with communicating the role and value of the distribution industry, saying “Our relocation will offer additional opportunities for us to welcome our members to the nation’s capital to clearly illustrate our core expertise to the lawmakers of the new Congress, regulators, thought leaders and our supply chain partners.”
