The triple blows from hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria in the United States were a wake-up call to many businesses on the importance of managing and predicting supply chain risks.

Yet the impacts were far less disruptive compared to even one or two years ago thanks to the adaptability that new digital technologies provide.
