How to keep supply chains running smoothly in a ‘bumpy’ global environment? If you live in Northern Europe and have eaten an avocado recently, you have benefited from a supply chain! Supply chains play a crucial role in connecting markets and economies on a global scale; that is of course a great virtue. But there’s great vulnerability at work too: think about the impact of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and strikes on the movement of goods and people.
In this course you will learn to understand the mechanisms used to safeguard 'smooth' flows in global supply chains.
