Supply Chain Runs on Trust

Supply Chain Runs on Trust

Jun. 7 | Certainly, one of the challenges we at SCMAP have relished over the past few years is telling people why supply chain is so important. Personally, it always begins with defining what supply chain is, and almost always I end up saying two things: that...

Up to Speed

Up to Speed

May. 25 | If greater use of e-commerce is going to be part of our so-called new normal, then our existing logistics service providers have a lot of work to do.   I was reminded of our General Membership Meeting roughly two years ago, when we explored the last...

New Horizons

New Horizons

May. 10 | Animal Crossing is a social simulation video game series first developed by Nintendo in 2000. A few weeks back, the newest version of the game, New Horizons, was released; it was heavily-hyped, considering the last version was released in 2012. You might...

Navigating the New Normal

Navigating the New Normal

Apr. 26 | We’re now seven weeks into this quarantine period across Luzon (and, arguably, across the whole country). While we continue to fight the spread of COVID-19, the discussion has shifted towards what life will be once the enhanced community quarantine...

A Seat At the Table

A Seat At the Table

Apr. 14 | Personally, I don’t like the term “Imperial Manila”. It’s not because, as a person who lives round these parts, I am offended by the term. It’s because it implies that we want everything for ourselves, at the expense of every other part of the...

Like A Business Continuity Plan, But Bigger

Mar. 28 | So, where do we start?   From our perspective, it’s been crazy, these past couple of weeks. The sudden declaration of a community quarantine in Metro Manila meant we had to figure out how to keep our supply chains moving, a big ask considering...

We Need Assurance

We Need Assurance

Mar. 14 | A lot has happened in two weeks.   When we last met, we had just fired off a letter to the Department of Trade and Industry, requesting an urgent meeting to discuss measures to mitigate what we believed would be the long-term impact of the COVID-19...

Clarion Call

Clarion Call

Feb. 29 | To be honest, I thought the COVID-19 crisis would start slowing down right about now, particularly when the number of daily new cases in China began to decline slightly. But, of course, there was no reason to let our guard down.   As I write this,...

An Outbreak of Opportunity

An Outbreak of Opportunity

Feb. 15 | I’m afraid I’m going to touch on supply chain resilience once again. But then, the developments of the past six weeks mean we have to revisit it over and over. The eruption of the Taal volcano, and now the novel Coronavirus (or, as they’re calling...

Smaller and Smaller Hubs

Smaller and Smaller Hubs

Jan. 31 | It happens fairly regularly: most days of the week, several times a day, we’d hear a rider from Shopee or Lazada call out to our next-door neighbors.   Do they order online this often? I used to ask.   Wrong. Our neighbors aren’t ordering,...
