Manufacturing Media Consortium Founder TR Cuter Sees Manufacturers Are Not Prepared for Disruptions


Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/08/2016 -- Disruptions from strikes to natural disasters; from economic sanctions to political strife are bringing the manufacturing supply chain to a dead stop. Even normal market fluctuations in demand create a volatile and crippling impact. The only insurance against this is to create an agile supply chain that can adapt and adjust to these unexpected events. Since transportation is businesses' highest indirect cost, making it agile can create a strong foundation for the whole supply chain according to Thomas R. Cutler, leading industrial journalist and founder of the Manufacturing Media Consortium.
