As the global climate shifts, extreme weather events are increasingly becoming the primary disruptors of supply chains. With 2024 set to face unprecedented challenges from hurricanes, winter storms, wildfires, and floods, the logistics sector is at a crucial juncture​​. Let’s take a closer look at these challenges and explore how ITC Diligence International Inc. offers comprehensive solutions to navigate these turbulent times.

Understanding Weather-Driven Logistics Challenges

Increasing Frequency and Severity: The transition from billion-dollar weather events occurring every four months in the 1980s to now every three weeks illustrates a dramatic escalation in both the frequency and severity of these events​​.

Critical Infrastructure Impact: The Panama Canal’s drought situation underscores the vulnerability of key global trade routes to weather phenomena. Restrictions on vessel drafts and limits on the number of vessels that can pass through are just the tip of the iceberg​​.

Regional Variations in Impact: Different regions face unique challenges, from winter storms elevating risks of more impactful disruptions to severe droughts and flooding altering the distribution patterns of precipitation​​. Specific instances in the U.S., like the deep freeze in Texas and the Christmas freeze in New York, highlight how localized extreme weather can significantly disrupt supply chains​​​​.
