Snapshot: Recent Supply Chain Events in Life Sciences & Biotech Industries

Posted by Wayne Caccamo on Oct 23, 2015 2:51:15 PM

We just prepared a report for Rx-360 leadership on potential supply chain disruption events over a recent three-and-one-half week period of time. The supply chain events were all detected and reported by our 24/7 EventWatch® global event monitoring and analysis service. I thought I would share some data we rolled up over this “snapshot” period of time. It sheds some light on the frequency and diversity of types of events that hit the life sciences and biotech global supply chains every day.

Supply Chain Resiliency Case Study: Was the Napa Earthquake a "Wake-Up" Event, or Did You Sleep In?

Posted by Charlotte Hicks on Sep 3, 2014 1:07:00 PM

On Aug. 24 at 3:20 a.m. Pacific Time, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake shook Northern California, injuring many people, damaging buildings and knocking out power and water services around Napa.

Though the Bay Area region is prone to this kind of natural phenomenon, it’s been a while since locals felt something this significant. The last major earthquake in the Bay Area was the 6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. Luckily, too, in comparison to other past tremors, the Napa earthquake was moderate.

But, still, it was an event that could have quickly turned in a wide-scale disruption. More importantly, it reveals how vulnerable supply chains are when Mother Nature is involved and how quickly you have to spring into action to get the situation under control. It is the perfect example of a supply chain resiliency case study.
