Keep on Trucking: How Managing Risk Proactively Mitigates Crisis Impact


As procurement and supply chain leaders continue to manage the effects of the coronavirus crisis, the question is not whether you need SCRM, but how you implement a strategy that goes beyond supplier onboarding. Although not all impacts to your supply chain can be predicted, a comprehensive risk management strategy can keep you moving steadily through the rough patches.

On the slippery slope of risks and threats, Douglas Dynamics knows how to maintain steady traction. North America’s leading producer of snowplow, ice control and upfit truck attachments understands that if you manage risk proactively, you can mitigate crisis impacts. Furthermore, as the recipient of the riskmethods 2019 SCRM Program of the Year award, they know how to proactively leverage supply chain risk to mitigate the impacts of crisis.

Join James Klotz, Vice President Global Sourcing and Supply, to gain actionable insights through Douglas Dynamics’ SCRM journey, including how to:

  • Proactively monitor your supplier network to identify risk events before they happen
  • Effectively mitigate impact of unforeseen crises - like COVID-19
  • Reinforce the value that a resilient supply chain brings to your organization
