Supply Chain Resilience: Concept and Practice

Barnes, Paul H. (2008) Supply Chain Resilience: Concept and Practice. Safety & Security International.


Security threats and the plethora of other active threat sources introduce high levels of uncertainty to business considerations and the world economy generally. Any disruption of maritime or aviations supply has significant implications on economic activity and world trade. It has been suggested that investment in the United States dropped by 0.2 per cent of GDP because of the ongoing threat of terrorism. Obviously international trade is heavily reliant on safe and open waterways and oceans. A significant downstream consequence of a terrorist attack on the maritime transport system would most definitely entail disruption of supply resulting in a range of impacts. This work examines the application of Resilience in maritime supply chains.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
