This Week's Highlight:

Hello All,

Know it has been a while since we updated and shared a weekly newsletter with you all, however just a reminder that we are still here and available to support and help where we can, so that we can all come out of this current crisis hopefully better and stronger.
Thought that I would share the above image with you as it reflects a little of what we in PTI have been feeling over the past few weeks and no doubt many of you also. Some days during this time we feel like we are on the left -hand side of the above picture, seeing all the cracks and focusing on the dark heavy clouds. Possibly feeling lost and trapped. However now more than ever it is important to create a new focus, move towards the middle of that road and look for the good and the opportunities. We in PTI have learned to be grateful for our colleagues, and to take one day at a time. Now is the time to build your road map and your resilience, because out of every crisis comes opportunity.  Shift your perception and you shift your awarenes

Finding and Managing Contractual Risk and Reward in a Pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic is affecting supply chains and commercial relationships — and we need to look at  how various countermeasures, solutions and providers are helping to respond to this situation

The best contracts work in concert with robust risk management processes, policies and playbooks so that when various external conditions change, the underlying contracts can translate those changes to the affected parties and actually give them the decision-support / options to help jointly mitigate them.

A Lesson in Supply Chain Risk Management.

The Chinese government notified the WHO of an unusual illness in the city of Wuhan last December 31. This illness was later identified as a novel coronavirus and named COVID-19. Weeks later, as the illness spread, the Chinese government placed Wuhan under quarantine.
Factories producing goods for thousands of global companies remained shut down past the Lunar New Year holidays as employees couldn't return to work. Rail, air and ocean shipments stopped.
