The global supply of food is an incredibly complex system, involving multiple actors and a diverse value chain from production through to consumption. Every part of the chain is dependent on infrastructure systems. We share six principles for enhancing the resilience of food transportation systems from our contribution to Cereal Foods World.
This major end user of transport infrastructure across 13 countries is heavily dependent on infrastructure owned and operated by others. How does it put resilience into practice?
Contributing to the research on global supply chains, this guest blog on the initial UK-focused research highlights global pinch points, the impact of politics, and how data analytics and sight upstream are critical to resilience
Topical discussions at the UK Ports Conference echoed the findings of research into global supply chain dependencies on critical infrastructure.
Two new reports present findings from research into the dependency of global supply chains on critical infrastructure resilience
The movement of food around the world is an important reality of today’s globalised, urbanised and heavily populated world. Even small disruptions within the supply chain can result in cascading impacts that have negative consequences from farmers to consumers. The Resilience Shift’s focus is on the resilience of critical infrastructure systems, and we recognise that […]
During February, March and April 2019, the Resilience Shift, working with Arup’s supply chain logistics experts, hosted seven workshops on the topic of Resilience of Food Supply Chains. These were designed to improve our understanding of how diverse stakeholders view the dependency of global supply chains on infrastructure resilience and how the Resilience Shift could […]
Building resilience of critical infrastructure requires decision-makers working in different industry sectors to understand ‘what’ can be done, ‘why’ it should be done, and ‘how’ to put it into practice. Our work to date has told us that key stakeholders are often either unaware of the value that resilience can bring or are constrained by […]
