Supply chains are more important than ever. Today’s organizations depend on reliable and fast delivery of goods and services to meet customer requirements. Disruptions in the supply chain must be attended to quickly and aggressively. Time is of the essence.

The challenge the nature and type of disruption are ever changing and unknown. Supply chain executives must be able to react to disruptions caused by a wide variety of factors anywhere in the globe at any time. Whether the disruption is from a strike in a port, rail lines stopped by protests, natural disasters, or global pandemics, the supply chain team must respond.
