Do you have an emergency business plan?

Only half of logistics companies have a Business Contingency Plan (BCP) in place, according to a survey by the Chartered Management Institute.

The 2006 Business Continuity Management Survey says that although 91 per cent of logistics managers surveyed believe BCP is important, only half (59 per cent) say their organisation has a BCP in place.

Jo Causon, director for marketing and corporate affairs, CMI said: “Unless appropriate and effective business continuity processes are thoroughly considered, organisations leave themselves wide open to a variety of threats and potential disruption.”

The findings were collected from 1,150 public and private sector managers.
