Supply Chain Management under the Threat of International Terrorism

Topics: Supply Chain, Terrorism,

This document was published shortly after the 9/11 attacks, an event which the author asserts signaled the West's entrance into a new era in which large scale terrorist acts are to be expected. It examines the four main challenges companies because of this: preparing for another attack, managing supply chains under increased uncertainty, managing relationships with the government, and organizing to meet obstacles. The paper considers circumstances primarily in the United States, but notes that its recommendations can be of use globally.
