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.
