Hurricane Irma - PCSC Alert 2017 – 87

This from Chuck Forsaith of the Pharmaceutical Cargo Security Coalition (PCSC) is relevant to ALL interested in Supply Chain Logistics Security: 

It is strongly recommended that shippers confirm if destination facilities are in  areas that may be impacted -  and have alternate plans for secure staging locations outside of the storm’s path – that includes when it is expected to reach the south central part of the United States (Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, etc. It is also strongly recommended that shippers and manufacturers utilize all available tracking technology they have at their disposal to both monitor where shipments are, as well as to mitigate the risk of theft. In the event cargo is either pilfered or stolen, the ability to provide real-time, accurate location coordinates to law enforcement is an essential component to any successful recovery.
