Unforeseen disruptions in the supply chain, such as terror attacks, natural disasters, border closures, political unrest and even cargo theft, can result in substantial financial, market and reputational losses. As a result, reducing risk has become a must for global companies seeking to thrive in increasingly dynamic conditions. This session will share insights on how Deutsche Post DHL, as the world’s largest logistics company, monitors risks in its global transportation network using real-time intelligence sourced from half a million employees across the world. It will also share case-studies from the Brussels attacks and Tianjin port explosions to demonstrate how DPDHL is helping customers become more resilient in the way they manage their global assets using big data analytics. The session will also highlight DPDHL’s three-step approach to monitoring and addressing risks in the supply chain using innovative technologies and best-in-class methodologies, and underpin how a comprehensive risk management effort, through collaboration with multiple stakeholders both in and outside of one’s organization, can pave the path to resiliency.
