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. 

Several industry experts participated in this webinar to discuss processes and automation tools that become integral to ensure op-tempo is maintained. Speakers include:

  • 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)
  • Andy Tsukamoto, Senior Director & Counsel of Customer Service, Maersk Line (Logistics Provider Support & Assistance to Shippers)
  • Donald Snyder, Director of Business Development, Port of Long Beach (Port Notifications & Assistance)
