How to Protect Your Logistics Network Against Volatility

Supply chain leaders discuss managing disruption in their transport networks, making long-term investments and how logistics visibility is evolving

The disruption of recent months, from coronavirus, to the container crisis, to the Suez Canal blockage, has meant a challenging time for supply chain and logistics leaders. Raconteur gathered five prominent supply chain and logistics leaders to discuss how they’ve weathered the storm of recent months, and the tools that are helping them protect against future risks, from real-time visibility to investing in the right technologies.

How to prepare for disruption in your transport network

While some events can never be fully anticipated, the right planning, processes and stakeholder management will set organisations up to react fast to a crisis and minimise disruption. From collaboration and stakeholder management, to transformation and agility, our speakers discuss how they are futureproofing their logistics and transport management.

Why visibility is the key to logistics resilience

Our panellists explain what they’ve learned about the need for real-time visibility over their transport networks, how it can enable businesses to build in buffers to avoid disruption, and how data and analytics can shed light on future demand to drive competitive advantage.

Managing transport costs in changing markets

With predicting transport costs more challenging than ever, our speakers discuss how they have fared against changing markets, and explore the investments that supply chain and logistics leaders should make now for the sake of long term resilience.
