It is recognised, not only in business but across many sectors of society (i.e. public services, distribution of essential supplies, military and defence, etc) that effective supply chain management (SCM), underpinned by efficient logistics systems, is a key enabler of success. Such systems are, however, increasingly impacted by volatility and external shocks. The impact of these is now felt more widely as supply chains have become more globalised. Witness for example the impact of unfortunate and unforeseen localised weather events on global production systems. In this Guest Lecture we will review the evolution of logistics and SCM, describe current strategies being pursued, and examine how organisations are endeavouring to mitigate the impact of turbulence in their environment.
