Recovering After Disaster – Lessons Learned for Supply Chain Execs

Traditional methods for managing supply chain risk rely on knowing the likelihood of occurrence and the magnitude of impact for every potential event that could materially disrupt a company’s operations.  This becomes more difficult when high-impact, mega disasters occur. Seemingly more commonplace, we look back at Hurricane Katrina, the Fukushima earthquake and tsunami, Rana Plaza fire/collapse, Nepal earthquake, West Coast port strikes, and Tianjin explosion to learn about tools that can assist sourcing and logistics teams avoid, react, and remediate when catastrophes do strike and force even operationally savvy companies to scramble.

ON this webinar, several industry experts spoke about processes and automation tools that become integral to ensure op-tempo is maintained. Speakers include representatives from:

  • Gary Barraco, Director of Global Product Marketing, Amber Road (Moderator & Technology Sector)
  • Brian Sheley, Managing Director, Cascade Asia Advisors (South East Asia Country Risks)
  • Marta Moss, Senior Manager, Global Logistics Team, Levi Strauss & Co. (Case Study: Hurricane Katrina)
