Supply Chain and Logistics Predictions for 2016
DECEMBER 16, 2015
Terrorism : The recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, coupled with the ongoing instability in Syria and Iraq and the spread of ISIS, have raised the risk for terrorism-related supply chain disruptions in 2016. It’s also important to note that shipping and aviation, two industries with significant greenhouse gas emissions, are not included in the COP21 agreement. There will be a lot less air shipped in boxes, trailers, and containers next year.
