Whether it be the catastrophic impacts of climate change, an increasingly volatile geopolitical landscape, or any number of threats to supply chain stability, today’s shippers are living in an era rife with disruptions.
As the global maritime supply chain continues to grapple with a season of disruptions, shippers and logistics professionals around the globe are struggling to build effective resilience strategies to mitigate the consequences of a volatile logistics industry.
With Maersk and other major carriers diverting shipments around the Cape of Good Hope, which can add up to two weeks of additional transit time to shipments, shippers are under pressure to develop effective resilience strategies.
