Guest: Kathy Fulton of ALAN on the threat of disruptions from weather extremes

Top 10 Supply Chain Threats

Dec 21 2021 • 11 mins

It should come as news to no one that the pandemic broke global supply chains, and they remain in need of repair.  Container ships are backed up waiting to unload. Shortages are causing massive delays. Capacity is limited, companies cannot find labor, nor can they find the drivers to transport the goods they do have. Add to that the threats of severe weather, cyber security concerns, a failing infrastructure, and lingering impacts of a worldwide pandemic. It is certainly an interesting time to be a supply chain professional. But with each of these threats comes opportunities. We’ll explore it all with industry insiders and thought leaders on "The Top 10 Supply Chain Threats”  a new, 11-episode, podcast series from CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly.

Episode 9: Threat: Weather extremes

Weather is always a risk to the resiliency of a supply chain, and shifts in climate patterns seem to be making it an even more important risk for which supply chain executives need to be prepared. Kathy Fulton, executive director of the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN), joins Mitch Mac Donald to discuss these risks and how they could impact your supply chain operations.
