Supply Chain Resilience

The Point of View of Quintiq


The butterfly effect
The “butterfly effect” was a term coined by mathematician, meteorologist and chaos theory expert Edward Lorenz around 1960.

The labor dispute caused freight bottlenecks. Companies using West Coast ports had to spend additional millions to cover extra inventory costs and shipping delays. US trade deficits rose to a massive $46 billion in December 2014.
