What is this paper about?

With three major storms hitting the United States (and surrounding regions) within two weeks, two things are clear: hurricane season is upon us with global ferocity, and it is up to proactive supply chain professionals to assess and mitigate the supply chain risks facing their companies before it is too late.

The objective of this brief whitepaper is to inspect the potential supply chain impacts of Hurricane Irma across its projected path as it develops, from its point of origin to its imminent landfall upon the Floridian Peninsula and beyond. As with any developing storm, Irma’s trajectory is subject to change, which is all the more why supply chain organizations should closely monitor Hurricane Irma and any deviations from its forecasted path. Now is high time for supply chain practitioners to consider its potential impact and conduct proper due diligence to ensure their supply chain operations are adequately prepared.

Given the time-sensitive nature of this topic, this whitepaper aims for a concise assessment of Hurricane Irma to guide your next steps. This whitepaper, leveraging publicly available sources and Resilinc’s supplier data repository, will examine at a high level:

  • Hurricane Irma, its severity and path, and critical storm details
  • Regions of confirmed impact (Caribbean Islands & Puerto Rico), the industrial significance of these regions to the supply chain, and observed damages/ disruptions thus far
  • Regions of imminent impact (Floridian Peninsula and its major ports), the industrial significance of these regions, anticipated damages and disruption, and the implications of these disruptions
  • Insights gleaned from Resilinc’s mapped supplier data repository
