Transportation & Logistics 2030

Volume 4

Securing the supply chain

Freight and passenger transport facilities are frequently the targets of attacks, whether the motive be political or purely for profit. Natural disasters like the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan show us only too clearly just how vulnerable our transportation and logistics systems are, when, for example, key commercial harbours are taken out of commission; not to mention the far graver human suffering such events can cause. And with electronic data exchange becoming an ever more critical part of interlinked value chains, worries about data security and industrial espionage are becoming more pronounced.

Our new report "Transportation & Logistics 2030 Volume 4: Securing the supply chain" draws upon the results of this survey, as well as incorporating a security risk profile that transportation & logistics companies can use to analyse the security of their operations.
