Global Supply Chain Security
Global supply chain security has become one of the hottest topics in international trade since 9/11. The subsequent enactment of various security initiatives was designed to secure the global supply chain beginning from the source and continuing through every means of conveyance to the country of import, even to the ultimate purchaser. Voluntary participation in many of the initiatives has, or is about to become, mandatory.
