Abstract

The supply chain today is vulnerable to risks that might affect the flow of materials, information and money anywhere between its upper and lower levels that could yield to a drastic loss in productivity, profitability as well as competitive advantages. Hence, it is vital for organizations to be agile and flexible enough to combat any form of risks that could be a threat to their success especially in deliveries. This paper therefore uses a case study approach to study and portray the effect of risks on the deliveries of a logging company. A simulation model is developed to represent the delivery process whereby the impact of the risks is discussed to raise awareness of uncertainties.
