Supply chain security in a high-risk world

Logistics Management’s sister publication, Supply Chain Management Review (SCMR), interviewed security expert Barry Brandman in its July/August 2003 issue, not long after the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. The threats to the security of supply chains have certainly not abated since that interview; if anything, they have only intensified.

“No technology acting alone will adequately protect a supply chain—regardless of how sophisticated it may be.”

So now seems to be the perfect time to revisit the subject of supply chain security. And, once again, Barry Brandman is the go-to guy. Brandman is president of New Jersey-based Danbee Investigations, which provides professional investigative, auditing, and security consulting services to hundreds of major companies.

Brandman has developed a particular expertise in logistics and supply chain management. He’s a frequent speaker at industry conferences such as CSCMP and the International Conference on Cargo Security. He also has authored articles on supply chain security for a wide range of publications.

The underlying message in this current interview with Brandman is clear: In a high-risk world, companies must be proactive when it comes to supply chain security; to be otherwise, invites a host of serious and potentially devastating consequences. SCMR’s Editorial Director Francis J. Quinn conducted the interview.

Putting the renewed strength in the truckload market into a very positive perspective is a report issued by Avondale Partners analyst Donald Broughton, which was released yesterday. Entitled, “Q2’15 Trucking Capacity; Goldilocks Era Continues,” Broughton explained that in the second quarter only 70 truckload fleets failed, or exited the business. That number may seem high to some, but it is not, especially when you consider that the second quarter of 2014 saw more than five times as many truckload carriers, 375 to be exact, exit the business.
