Stretched supply chains, changing consumer preferences, and a shift to online retail are putting increased pressure on marine, cargo, and logistics companies, which are integral in the delivery of items from their point of origin to end customers.
As the maritime and logistics industry faces both evolving and emerging risks, there is an increased need for both short- and long-term planning to build a resilient supply chain infrastructure. And this has to take place well ahead of peak seasons. But as global supply chains become increasingly interconnected and complex, they can be impacted by a growing number of challenges, requiring an agile approach to addressing risks and a strategy centered around enhancing resilience.
In this episode of Risk in Context, Marcus Baker, Marsh’s Global Head for Marine, Cargo, & Logistics, speaks with Janelle Griffith, the Leader of Marsh’s North American Logistics Practice, Dirk Segers, the Head of Marine, Cargo, & Logistics for Northwest Europe and Switzerland, and Thiago Gonçalves, the Head of Marine, Cargo, & Logistics for Latin America and the Caribbean. They discuss the evolution of the maritime and logistics ecosystem, the multiple challenges that are impacting global supply chains, and share opportunities and actions that risk managers and senior leaders should consider in order to build a more resilient and agile organization.
