Workshop on Building More Resilient Supply Chains

The Transportation Research Board (TRB), with support from Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), hosted a workshop focused on strategies and innovations to build more resilient supply chains. The Workshop on Building More Resilient Supply Chains was held April 11–12, 2023, at the Keck Center of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Washington, D.C. The workshop brought together private freight and supply chain professionals, public agency personnel, academics, and other key supply chain stakeholders to explore and learn about building more resilient supply chains. The workshop included presentations focused on key innovations implemented since the COVID-19 pandemic and what vulnerabilities still remain. As a result of the discussions, a central theme emerged that supply chain resilience has a temporal dimension, meaning that the time in which action is taken to address supply chain resilience can occur at several different points in a disruptive event. While some adaptations and innovations to address supply chain resilience can be implemented before a disruption, others are needed during a disruption, and it is still important to consider adaptations and innovations after a disruption. Another theme that emerged is that communication and collaboration are critical when addressing, planning for, and enhancing supply chain resilience. This document presents the discussions and presentations from the workshop.
