Use a Total View of Risk to Overcome Your Supply Chain Challenges

Challenge # 1: Labor Issues

Shortage of workers, long hours, stress, and strikes are among the labor issues facing the industry.

Challenge: Long hours, stressful conditions, and an aging workforce. Filling empty positions in the transportation and logistics sector is tough. Mental health issues affect roughly one quarter of employees, according to recent research. Strikes, increased regulations, and demand surges also put pressure on logistics, transport, and supply chain management.

Challenge #2 Build Resilience

Challenge # 3: ESG and Sustainability Requirements

Complying with new directives requires new equipment and new strategies. 

Challenge: The need for new equipment to enable green transportation in supply chains that meets environmental, social, and governance (ESG), and sustainability directives. Long shipping timescales can force providers to use air freight, causing an inverse effect of goals related to reduced CO2 emissions goals such as Scope 3 (indirect emissions).
