Following a pilot workshop in Manchester, United Kingdom, the first of a series of Global Supply Chain workshops took place at the end of February in New York.
February’s activities were wide ranging but inter-connected: ‘It’s essential to focus not only on the resilience of the technical system, but also on the people who are an integral part of the system.’
As well as the news from Davos, the focus for the Resilience Shift in January has been on further collaboration and on our key tenet to learn by doing.
Are you a retail and food logistics provider or customer, freight forwarder or transport operator, or a supporting organisation/association or specialist research institutions in this sector?
We interview Clon Ulrick on why ports matter to all of us and the challenges he sees for the sector. How can we make this critical infrastructure resilient to future shocks and stresses both expected and unexpected?
A new project explores the dependency of supply chains on critical infrastructure, with an initial focus on food.
As part of the ongoing Resilience Shift round-table series, we explored the challenges and opportunities for the resilience of ports and logistics at an event in November.
What can major projects do to shift their practices? See the report and presentation from Will Goode at the Major Projects Association Annual Conference 2018.
