Supply Management Special Report - Logistics

28 February 2022


Procurement and supply chain leaders are fundamental to business and economic stability, and this has never been more apparent than over the past year. The CIPS Procurement Power List recognises the excellence and fortitude that is driving progress - in global business and across the profession as a whole. 
Plus, we consider how the profession can do more to appeal to younger talent, the importance of upskilling managers, and what options are available beyond CPO level.

The past two years have seen a period of unprecedented dislocation in global supply chains. Nowhere has this been more pronounced than in the area of sea freight and the handling of freight into, through and out of the world’s ports.

We ask what is the role of the CPO in protecting organisations, what are the legal implications of failing to prevent a breach, and how can procurement draw upon core skills to devise more robust, effective strategies to tackle the problem?
