Business continuity for the transport sector
Companies in the transport sector are governed by strict deadlines to meet client requirements and fulfil their critical role in often complex logistics chains. Transport is the linchpin that underpins supply chains, the lifeblood of all businesses today, whatever the industry sector.
The consequences of transport failure are immense: empty supermarket shelves, hospitals lacking vital supplies and retailers without stock, to name but a few. Failure to deliver (literally) will result in reputational damage, loss of consumer confidence and steep compensation payments for breach of service level agreements.
While transport companies can't eliminate risks altogether, or always prevent disruption, with good business continuity management,
transport companies can manage the risks to minimise the negative impact on business operations, financial penalties for failure and reputational damage."I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity."- John D Rockefeller
In fact, well prepared transport companies can even capitalise on disruptions and disasters – having robust business continuity procedures in place to respond quickly and effectively when competitors cannot give them a competitive edge.Transport business continuity expertise
