BULLETIN 05
____________________________________________________________

This is our fifth bulletin to help keep members informed of global best practice responses to the current crisis. In this issue, our focus now turns to the global supply chain.

Once again, we are using our international reach to bring you information on how different regions and countries are responding to the logistics and transport challenges we face. This will be followed by our webinar on the same subject. Please see below for details or visit the international website to listen to the recording.

There were many immediate challenges to shipping goods successfully as countries faced lockdowns and set up border restrictions. Many of these barriers still exist, so, as professionals operating across borders and regions, we are already adapting and responding. As supply chains react, longer term questions are being asked on international sourcing and security of supply. This will bring into play the need for multiple sourcing of key materials and components. Security of supply will be more important than cost and efficiency in many cases. Our supply chain world has already changed dramatically. It will change more in the coming months.

Stay on top of these changes with CILT, and let us learn and understand from those around us.
