June 1 marks the start of tropical storm season, a time when managing supply chains becomes more challenging due to the heightened risk of monsoons, typhoons, and hurricanes. These adverse weather events can result in high winds and flooding, leading to supply chain delays and disruptions. However, businesses can implement measures and take proactive steps to minimize these risks and help keep their supply chains moving.
With tropical storm season upon us, it is important to be prepared for whatever disruptions severe weather might bring. Whether it is developing a contingency plan long before severe weather hits or rerouting cargo and utilizing air cargo options when severe weather occurs, JAS can help keep your supply chain running smoothly. Contact your local JAS office to ensure your supply chain is ready for the upcoming season.
