Webinar: Managing Transportation Security Risks

Join this webinar and hear how to take a proactive approach in leveraging supply chain risk intelligence.
Audience: Open industry. All apparel and footwear industry professionals, regardless of AAFA membership, are encouraged to participate.


Retailers, in collaboration with their insurance brokers and underwriters, want to address and mitigate the risk exposure and increasing costs of insurance they face from cargo crime. BSI routinely undertakes transportation security gap analysis and vulnerability assessment benchmarking projects set against industry best practices to assess the following: potential supply chain transportation security policy gaps, vulnerability risk exposure, the current state of retailers, and their transport suppliers' security practices and procedures. This type of assessment highlights where retailers are exposed and where they can improve on insurance cost efficiencies. Leveraging supply chain risk intelligence - to highlight where future risks and threats may disrupt retailers' supply chains - allows them to take a proactive approach. 

Attendees of this webinar will discover:
  • How a gap analysis of your supply chain transportation security management is conducted against industry best practice.
  • How to engage with your internal and external supply chain stakeholders to implement the updates.
  • How to utilize the report to identify and highlight opportunities for improvement.
