Supply Chain News: Little Reported Amid Still Wobbly Economy, Commodity Price Shocks and Supply Concerns Surging Again -- Before the great recession of 2008-09, commodity pricing and availability were among the top supply chain and corporate concerns, pressuring bottom lines and causing companies to make changes in supply chain strategies, from hedging commodity prices to extremely long term contracts with commodity suppliers to even a return to verticalization.

Yet MORE supply risk.

Planning for Supply Chain Problems is Essential -- If nothing else, large disasters such as the BP oil crisis and Hurricane Katrina have put businesses small and large on notice that unexpected events can pose serious problems, even when those businesses are far from the epicenter of such trouble. Proper preparation can yield great benefits for a company, and possibly ensure its survival.
