CIT-Workshop @Managing uncertainty in the global supply chain: why does it matter and how can we succeed?

20190508-10: Hamburg European Freight and Logistic Leaders Forum F&L

On the 9th and 10th of May, the General Assembly of the European Freight and Logistic Leaders Forum took place in Hamburg. This conference united an exceptional broad scope ranging from worldwide leading companies in freight, logistics and transport, over the World Economic Forum and the United Nation’s World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to the academic sphere represented through e.g. Universities, Research Centres and Weather Services.  This offered F&L and CIT the opportunity to heighten awareness of rapidly threatening  vulnerabilities in the face of accelerating climate change. This was accomplished by a half-day workshop on “Climate Change and Transport”, a breakout session dealing with “Managing supply chain risk and building resilience” and a keynote presentation by Prof. Hans von Storch. Throughout the conference, the upcoming CIT-F&L survey was promoted via a continuously looped video highlighting challenges ahead induced by future, climate-change forced hazard-development corridors.  Its results will not only provide services tailored to F&L members’ needs as well as sufficient information to decide whether available data on extreme-weather triggered damage/loss-events  allow for the application of CIT-procedures  safeguarding  major infrastructure-investments, but will also support WMO in establishing effective  services in its newly established Service Delivery Guide on Transportation.
