Resilinc Publishes 2017 EventWatch® Supply Chain Disruption Annual Report

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resilinc, a global provider of supply chain resiliency solutions, released its 2017 EventWatch® Supply Chain Disruption Annual Report today.  The report identifies that global supply chain disruptions roughly doubled in the past year, potentially impacting 32% of S&P 500 company's supply chains and negatively effecting the US economy.

In 2017, natural disasters and weather-related events proved to be a considerable source of disruption across the globe and especially the United States, which for the first time became the most impacted region in the world.  In addition to natural disasters, factory fires remain a significant risk to supply chains, and cyber-attacks increased substantially in 2017.

The annual report is a study of the prior year's supply chain disruption events: natural disasters, extreme weather, fires, environmental hazards, geopolitical occurrences, and other business developments.  These events are tracked and their impact upon manufacturing supply chains assessed by the Resilinc technology and expert teams.  The Resilinc EventWatch® service provides 24x7 alerting and notifications to subscribers tracking their exposure.  Hundreds of millions of news alerts across over 100,000 sources in 44 languages were monitored and analyzed in 2017 alone.

"This should be a wake-up call for business leaders around the globe," states Bindiya Vakil, CEO of Resilinc.  "2017 was a turbulent year for US companies and their supply chains, causing a hidden drag that must be addressed.  With 32% of S&P 500 companies potentially impacted, the economic damage is enormous."  Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria alone contributed to significant impacts to business in 2017, finds the report. 

In 2017, Resilinc EventWatch contacted more than 19,000 unique suppliers for potential impacts, which generated responses from 53% of those suppliers contacted.  "When an event occurs, action must be taken by all members of the supply chain, to ensure that appropriate steps are taken to avoid any potential impacts.  The faster and more efficiently these steps are taken, the less the overall economic consequences," said Shahzaib Khan, Director of EventWatch at Resilinc.

The annual report analyzed incidents by risk type, industry, geography, disruption potential, and month for 2016 and 2017 for comparison purposes by industry and geography.  The report highlights global supply chain risk trends through a variety of lenses and aids supply chain planning for 2018 and beyond.

Key report highlights include:

  • The top 5 events of 2017 in terms of impact to businesses were:
    1. Late winter storm in the Northeast USA, March
    2. Weather related damage closed the US/Mexico Laredo border, May
    3. Hurricane Harvey in USA, August
    4. Hurricane Irma in USA, September
    5. Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, September 
  • For the first time, North America was the most disrupted region by natural disasters.
  • Factory fire/explosion represented the majority of EventWatch bulletins in 2017 with 18% of bulletins notified.
  • Cyber-attacks increased substantially, particularly of the ransomware variety.
  • The automotive industry was the most disrupted industry as it saw an increase of 30% bulletins published. All industries observed increases of around 300 bulletins or greater in 2017.

Orion Biotechnology Reports Positive Results for Colorectal Cancer in Preclinical Study15.1.2019 15:00Pressemelding

OTTAWA, Jan. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orion Biotechnology Canada Ltd., a developer of novel medical treatments, today announced preclinical data produced in collaboration with Charles River Laboratories, evaluating the efficacy of OB-002O (5P12-RANTES) in colorectal cancer. BALB/c mice were inoculated subcutaneously with the CT-26 colorectal cancer cell line. Three days after inoculation intraperitoneal treatment was started with OB-002O, a murine anti-PD-1 antibody, OB-002 + anti-PD-1, or saline placebo. Treatment was given daily or every third day. Treatment with OB-0020 alone led to statistically significant delayed tumor growth at multiple time-points. An even more profound effect on the decrease in mean tumor volume was observed in combination cohort where animals received both, OB-0020 and the anti-PD-1 antibody (p>0.05). “There is growing awareness of the role of CCR5 antagonism as an important component of cancer immunotherapy.
