How to Manage Risk in the Logistics Supply Chain Webinar – A Plan for Resilience : Part 1

by Kim Colby

Transportation and logistics providers are forced to reckon with a dizzying array of potential risks including: cargo theft and in-transit loss, fires and natural disasters impacting stored goods and difficult vendor and subcontractor relationships. The increasing cost of products, materials, and labor has only exacerbated these problems in the past two years.

Effective supply chain risk management can help mitigate the threat that these risks pose to your company’s operations and bottom line. BSI and Roanoke’s expert panel will discuss best practices to understand:

  • How to manage both static and in-transit risk
  • The elements of a supply chain risk management strategy
  • How to begin implementing a risk management plan at your company

Please join us on November 10th at 12pm CT for the first in a series of engaging discussions designed to enhance your risk awareness and provide practical information you can use to ensure the success of your logistics operations.
