Supply Chain - Supply Chain Risk Management

A transportation risk process is used to characterize and manage transportation risk. PPG uses this process to determine:

  • Hazard characteristics of products
  • Appropriate modes of transport (e.g. rail versus highway)
  • Carrier selection and qualifications
  • Packaging and container specifications
  • Driver training requirements
  • Security precautions
  • Customer assessment

In certain situations, further risk evaluations may be necessary to determine if additional risk reduction activities should be considered.
