Warehousing Risk Management in Different Industrial Sectors
Organizations seek to improve their supply chain performance to be more effective and efficient even in risky environment that lead to supply chain vulnerability. Therefore, managing risks across supply chain activities and entities became significant requirement. One of those entities is the warehouse that provide the chain with value-added through availability of goods at right time and right place. This study attempts to assess the risks associated with warehousing in different industrial sectors. Also, to propose a response for significant risks to eliminate and mitigation their impact on the chain performance. Eight case studies were used to assess the risks associated with warehouse in real–life context. The findings show that damage of goods and accidents are common significant risks, missing of goods, and fire across the industrial sectors. The study opens new opportunities for researchers for further investigation in risk management in the warehouse as a significant entity in the supply chain.
