Supply Chain Management Review interviewed security expert Barry Brandman in our 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 in an increasingly complex and interconnected global environment.

So now seems to be the perfect time to revisit the subject of supply chain security. And, once again, Barry Brandman is the logical 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. Danbee’s scope encompasses all aspects of business crime, including supply chain security, inventory theft, fraud, embezzlement, cybercrime, corporate espionage, product counterfeiting, and workplace substance abuse.

Brandman has developed a particular expertise in logistics and supply chain management. He’s a frequent speaker at industry conferences such as the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), the Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC), and the International Conference on Cargo Security.  He also has authored articles on supply chain security for a wide range of publications.

Shippers and other ocean cargo carrier stakeholders should be cheering the announcement made today by The U.S. Coast Guard, as it formally notified the International Maritime Organization through a Declaration of Equivalency that the United States position on SOLAS is that there are multiple methods to submit the combined cargo and container weight (Verified Gross Mass or VGM).
