The Chief Executive of Transport Intelligence and Honorary Visiting professor at London Metropolitan University John Manners-Bell, was awarded at the Royal Logistics Corps foundation this week for his work on supply chain risk.

His submission to the Foundation’s "Review" magazine, entitled "Engineering the Resilient Supply Chain", dealt with the challenges faced by manufacturers, retailers and governments in today’s increasingly unstable global environment. It examined why supply chains are more at risk than ever before, and detailed many of the evolving threats. These include environmental, economic, societal as well as security and technological.

Professor Manners-Bell commented, "I am very honoured to have received this award. Supply chain risk has forced itself onto corporate and government agendas over the past few years but despite this very few organisations fully understand the threat to their operations. The Royal Logistic Corps Foundation, bringing together industry, academia and military logistics, is a very important initiative which, amongst its other aims, will help to address this issue."

Professor Perkins Dean of the Faculty said "Congratulations to John: we are very proud as a University to have such a professional in the industry to encourage and motivate our students."
