Supply chains have evolved into elaborate global processes that are incredibly detailed and intricate. Join us as we look at the risks associated with supply chains and best practices to avoid them.

With our growing global economy, today’s supply chains are more complex than ever. Suppliers are not constrained to a city, state or even country, which makes managing a supply chain a challenging task. A single disruption in one element can adversely affect the entire process.

On Thursday, March 8 at 2 p.m. Eastern, we will offer an hour-long webinar to address risk within supply chain networks. Logistics and supply chain researcher and Embry-Riddle professor Dr. Aman Gupta will discuss supply chain risk and why risk management is important.  He will also examine different risk drivers, sources, consequences and mitigation strategies.

The 60-minute complimentary session concludes with a moderated live question and answer period.
