Prepare Your Supply Chain for Hurricane Season

Prepare Your Supply Chain for Hurricane Season

Supply chain management is not an easy business to be in, and when hurricane season hits the added pressure can make many businesses crack. Don’t let that be you. If you live in an area that’s prone to hurricanes, then you should start to prepare your supply chain for hurricane season early on – with weather conditions changing all over the world, you should also start preparing if you find yourself in a danger zone near a natural disaster which might affect your supply chain.

Prepare Your Supply Chain for Hurricane Season

Spotting Weather Ahead

As the manager of a supply chain operation, you should know to keep an eye on the weather: if it’s anything that will affect your supply chain or put them at risk in any way, then you should let the rest of your supply chain know about the potential danger ahead – and this should kick your plan of action into motion. If you don’t have a plan at all, now’s a good time to correct it.

Communication at All Times

It’s vitally important that the entire supply chain is able to communicate with one another. This should take place both during the actual disaster and during the time where the disaster is being prepared for. Know exactly where you’re at in the supply chain, and have everyone report back with feedback as the event progresses – and this includes staying in touch with emergency services, emergency broadcasts and family back home.

Take Safety Precautions

You can and should have a proper safety plan in place: Human lives are worth more than any supply chain, and you should always have these precautions and an emergency plan. When disaster strikes, make sure that your supply chain is properly equipped to deal with it – and make sure that you know which alternatives there are to follow in the midst of a disaster such as a hurricane, including alternate routes.
