Supply chain agility is key to keeping the logistics sector moving during strikes   Print  
Evolution?s Brad Brennan believes that agility is key to keeping global supply chains moving during periods of industrial strike action Thursday, 4th November 2010

Following the recent wave of austerity strikes in Europe, emergency logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical is advising manufacturers and their suppliers to take a more creative approach to contingency planning. Spanish airlines operated just 40 percent of international flights during austerity strikes in September, while chaos was experienced on French road networks in October as strikes over pension reform closed the country’s oil refineries and caused a quarter of France’s 12,500 fuel stations to run dry. As standard routes and modes of transport suffer from increasingly debilitating strikes on a more regular basis, Evolution’s Brad Brennan believes that global supply chains can keep moving if they show sufficient agility.
