The first half of 2020 has been the most significant stress test global supply chains and transportation networks have experienced since War World II. Even the financial crisis of 2008/2009 cannot compare to large swaths of the economy being either forcibly or voluntarily shut down at once to slow the COVID-19 pandemic. The stress tests are likely to continue as the global economy will probably stop and start again, depending on regional infection and transmission levels of COVID-19.
In this white paper, brought to you by FreightWaves and Transplace, we will take an in-depth look at how unlikely events — often described as white or black swan events — are driving supply chain and transportation professionals to seek out realtime alternative data to create a competitive advantage in their operations and finances.
Topics covered in this white paper include:
• Analysis of black or white swan events
• How to include black or white swan events in freight forecasts
• Using alternative data to prepare for unpredictable events
