Rob Handfield Discusses the Many Issues Impacting the Future of Supply Chain
Rob Handfield, professor of operations and supply chain management, explains how the labor shortage is not the only challenge facing the current state of the supply chain as climate change and the longevity of the pandemic are rising problems.
“People didn’t even understand who was in their supply chain and where their stuff came from,” said Handfield. “We have always had very fragile supply chains and the more we outsource the more risky they become. It has all caught up to us now and we are now paying the piper.”
