Supply chains have been under repeated disruption. We can recall a series of events such as the Brexit, the US-China Trade War, the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine War.
Our centre’s first report on creating resilient supply chains was published in 2003 out of research funded by the Department for Transport. Two decades on, we now share our recent thinking on what resilience means for modern supply chains.
This webinar will:
- Discuss the evolution of research on supply chain resilience during the last two decades.
- Present the state-of-the art research on supply chain resilience, synthesising activities across Cranfield University.
- Invite companies to consider the new thinking on supply chain resilience.
