9780071477512: Securing Global Transportation Networks: A Total Security Management Approach

Viable, value-creating solutions for securing global transportation networks

Securing Global Transportation Networks demonstrates how improved security processes can create value across all the business functions throughout an entire value chain. Readers will learn a whole new security management philosophy, as explained through domestic and international examples and case studies ranging from major retailers such as Home Depot to shipping giants such as Maersk and FedEx. This book also looks ahead to future developments and "best practices" for the future. If you're charged with making or evaluating transportation security decisions, you'll find the tools you need to succeed -- and prosper -- with the Total Security Management approach.

  • Explains globalization's impact on transportation networks
  • Creates a framework for realizing a return on security investments by integrating it as a core business process
  • Details how transportation firms, investors, and insurance companies can measure and reward smart security practices that protect a firm's fixed assets, assets in transit, brand equity and goodwill, and human capital

Review:

"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 (Contingency Planning Exchange 2008-03-01)

"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." (Logistics Today 2008-03-01)

"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." (Supply Chain Management Review 2008-03-01)

Recommended, 'Executive Bookshelf for Disaster-proofing the Supply Chain.' (Supply and Demand Chain Executive Journal 2008-03-01)
