Inside World Trade: Recalibrating the Risk/Return Ratio of a Secure Supply Chain

from worldtrademag.com

by Neil Shister
I was recently invited to moderate a panel at a conference addressing security matters. Prior to the session, I asked the organizer (whose firm runs a variety of supply chain events around the world) whether this was a popular subject. “Not as much as you would expect,” he admitted. “What is hot, then?” He answered immediately: “Collaboration and visibility.”

I certainly understand the importance of collaboration and visibility. Over the past five years that I’ve been editing World Trade, I’ve watched management’s approach to logistics morph into something considerably more grand and critical to the success of the enterprise — the supply chain.
