Review:

Recommended, 'Executive Bookshelf for Disaster-proofing the Supply Chain.'

"If "Securing Global Transportation Networks" is your line in the sand, a starting point on the unending path of supply chain risk management, it's a good place to start."

"A must-read approach for creating sustainable value from smart practices."

--Michael Cadenazzi, CEO of Continuity Solutions and Founding Member, Washington, DC, Chapter of the Contingency Planning Exchange

"Given the possibility of what could happen to your supply chain if you fail to take the steps to mitigate supply chain risk, "Securing Global Transportation Networks" is a worthwhile and cost-effective investment."
