Heat waves, extreme precipitation, snowfall and cold spells, storms, floods, landslides, fog, wave heights, etc. are affecting all modes of transport – road, rail, maritime as well as inland shipping. There is no way to escape, no ”safe” mode that is and will not be increasingly impacted in the decades ahead under accelerated climate change.
The economic viability of companies in supply chain operations relies on the very basis on which their business decisions draw on – from how to resolve emergency situations under pressure to the design of anticipatory, corporate strategies.
Climate change alters all weights of decision factors at increasing speed. Worse, it is a factor itself that has often not yet been accounted for.
Survival and gain demands decision making which can integrate both future threat exposures (science) and countermeasures (industry). To make this attainable, F&L has partnered with CIT to ensure give F&L members access to world class scientists. By completing their confidential survey and providing sufficient information, CIT can give you feedback on future risks to YOUR business. We will also share non-company specific data with the World Meteorological Organisation to help them understand what transport users need from them to help overcome business challenges that you face in daily practice.
