ACP North Texas Members,

In the aftermath of the recent Francis Scott Key bridge accident in Baltimore, we as business continuity professionals, should take a moment to think about how our areas of business could have been or will be impacted and strengthen supply chain resilience strategies. This event will cause significant disruptions in transportation and logistics and serve as a reminder of our supply chains' susceptibility to unexpected incidents. We should consider the following types of activities:

  1. Regularly conduct comprehensive risk assessments to identify potential disruptions and implement mitigation strategies.
  2. Embrace advanced technologies such as AI to enhance real-time visibility and predictive analytics across our supply chains.
  3. Diversify our suppliers and transportation routes to minimize dependence on single points of failure.
  4. Develop and refine contingency plans, including identifying alternative suppliers and logistics options, to ensure we can quickly adapt to sudden changes.
  5. Maintain strategic reserves of critical components to cushion against short-term supply chain interruptions.

By evaluating and fortifying some of these practices, we can enhance our ability to respond to and recover from supply chain disruptions, securing operational resilience against future challenges. If manufacturing is a key revenue driver for your business, prioritizing supply chain resilience is crucial and can be a strategic advantage in a competitive business landscape.
