Transportation supply chain concerns

As organizations continue to grow their supply chains, they rely heavily on their transportation and logistics providers to protect and deliver their shipments. Transportation companies must ensure their shipments are properly monitored at all times to avoid the risk of cargo theft, hijacking, and smuggling incidents. One of the major challenges transportation providers face is the use of subcontractors and agents and not knowing their compliance levels and overall risk. This sector is also faced with the threat of natural disasters interfering with their operations, which could cause delays or damage to goods. In order to mitigate these risks, transportation providers must be able to identify and react quickly to global threats to maintain the integrity of their customer’s shipments.
