Press Release: Amazon Key and Porch Thieves: A risk to the supply chain?

Supply Chain Risk Management (9780749480158)2nd November 2017: Supply Chain Risk Management: Understanding Emerging Threats to Global Supply Chains

Amazon is launching Amazon Key on 8th November to pilot a solution to porch thieves in time for Christmas. The service would allow delivery drivers to enter a customer’s home for deliveries, avoiding the risk of packages being swiped before the owner gets home. Is this the next step in supply chain risk management? Does the supply chain end when the package leaves the delivery driver’s hands?

As retailers grapple with Amazon’s decision, they need to manage the present risks so that, should Amazon succeed, they can respond with their own initiatives. The new edition of Supply Chain Risk Management: Understanding Emerging Threats to Global Supply Chains by John Manners-Bell provides insights that will prepare for this change.

Publishing on 3rd November 2017, Supply Chain Risk Management: Understanding Emerging Threats to Global Supply Chains is a timely addition to the bookshelves of CEOs, supply chain strategists and risk managers. With new and updated chapters on piracy, cyber threats, corruption and disruption, this indispensable new book is the key resource for supply chain professionals and students looking for the authoritative text on how to protect a business and its reputation by managing risk.

Nick Wildgoose, Global Supply Chain Product Leader of Zurich Insurance Group, praised the book, calling it ‘a very valuable addition that will help organizations address the increasingly important and constantly changing topic of supply chain risk’.
