Yossi Sheffi has been writing about transportation, logistics, and supply chain management since as far back as 1985, when he published Urban Transportation Networks. Since then, he has tackled a variety of topics important to supply chain managers, including logistics clusters and supply chain resiliency. A professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he serves as Director of the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL), he is an expert in systems optimization, risk analysis, and supply chain management. In his latest book, The Power Of Resilience: How The Best Companies Manage The Unexpected, Sheffi returns to the subject of supply chain resiliency, or the ability to bounce back from the type of disruptions that are all too common in today’s global, interconnected supply chains.
