Risk is Everywhere Risk is everywhere. In the supply chain, there are countless risks to manage. Transporting goods is just one of those risks, but it’s one with a couple of obvious dangers. A wreck, whether on the road or out at sea, can lead to lost time, lost goods, & (in the worst case scenarios) bad injuries. Don’t worry, this video is not of a devastating wreck….more like a slow-motion bump between two behemoths of the sea. Skip to the 2:40 mark to see the actual collision. http://youtu.be/2ktwo-k-onk As far as we know, no one was seriously injured in this collision. The goods were eventually recovered & the ships repaired. As this video made the rounds via email over the last couple of days however, it got us thinking about the many risks in our industry & how we have to plan for & adjust to sudden changes on a regular basis. Whether it’s a delivery delay (because of a container ship collision) or an equipment malfunction (like a forklift smashing into a pallet rack frame), there is always potential risk that is out of our control.
