In 2016 there were 15 extreme weather events in the U.S. which individually exceeded $1 billion in losses, not including the trailing economic impact of the areas affected. The number of such events continues to climb every year, begging the question: Do you know your supply chain well enough to be prepared for the potential disruption caused by extreme weather?
