Risk Management

Note from the editor

Risk takes many forms in the supply chain: a storm, a sudden change of regulation, an unethical supplier, a cyberattack.

Managing these risks can be a lot for one company, and the supply chain manager must constantly survey the landscape to deal with changes on a daily basis, creating resilient plans for these shifting realities.

In this trendline, we talk about these challenges, what they mean for the supply chain and how companies are dealing with them.
