New club to tackle supply chain risks

[ March 28, 2013   //   ]

The Logistics Institute at Hull University Business School is launching a club to help companies improve the security and resilience of their supply chains in London on 1 May.

The Supply Chain Risk and Resilience Club aims to help companies meet the challenges of managing and securing their sourcing and distribution processes by providing advice, the latest research findings and workshops where leading academics and industry experts from major global companies – including Unipart Logistics, PwC and Estee Lauder – will share their experiences of and best practice for managing risk.

The launch event will conclude with a round-table discussion to create a future agenda for enhancing the security of this critical area of commerce.

Institute director Dr Omera Khan, explained: “Supply chain risk concerns all commercial organisations, particularly where chains extend across national boundaries. Macro-economic turbulence, natural disasters and geopolitical uncertainties have dramatically changed the risk profile of most supply chains and businesses must now contend with the potential for severe disruptions to their sourcing and distribution arrangements. Our new risk and resilience club will equip companies with the necessary tools to enhance the security of their supply chains.”
