Last quarter we initiated the Supply Chain Matters Quarterly Newsletter as a supplement to this blog.  The newsletter provides an analysis of our daily and weekly blog commentaries, providing a broader and more reflective perspective on this past quarter’s events and their implications across global supply chains.

Three prominent supply chain themes continue to dominate the events from April through June of 2009:

  • The ongoing supply chain effects brought about by the current global recession, particularly those impacting U.S. automotive supply chains, as well as the overall state of logistics within the U.S.
  • Non-stop supply chain disruption, manifested by continued product contamination incidents involving multiple food supply chains, as well as the threats of the ongoing H1N1 flu pandemic
  • Specific supply chain developments within the aerospace (Boeing) and consumer electronics industry sectors (Apple, Palm, Sony)
