Article 1- Supply chain 2.0 revisited: a framework for managing volatility-induced

risk in the supply chain

This article deals with the Supply Chain Volatility Index (SCVI), and expand on prior
work by presenting a conceptual framework illustrating how firms can deal with
persistent volatility, the ensuing risk and mitigate the cost implications for their supply
chain operations. The articles with the concepts of recovery and resilience cost within a
framework designed to help firms manage volatility-induced risk by minimising the
adverse cost implications of volatility in their supply chain.

Article 2 - Extending the supply chain visibility boundary: Utilizing stakeholders

for identifying supply chain sustainability risks

This article talks about that how buying firms facing low supply chain visibility can utilize
their stakeholder network to identify salient supply chain sustainability risks (SCSR). SCSR
is an increasingly important phenomenon in corporate practice that has received only
scarce research attention. The design science approach represents a valuable means for
generating theoretical insights and emergent solutions to the real-world problem of
SCSR identification. It is a mechanisms of a buying firms can employ to identify SCSR
hotspots and fostering the nascent understanding of responsibility attribution by
stakeholders. Moreover, the emerging theory of the supply chain is enriched by paving a
way to extend the supply chain visibility boundary. The procedural model is presumably
most useful in contexts of elevated stakeholder pressure and low supply chain visibility.

Article 3 - The data-driven analytics for investigating cargo loss in logistics systems.

Cargo loss has been a major issue in logistics management. This article provide guidance
about how to retrieve valuable information from logistics data and to develop cargo loss
mitigation strategies for logistics risk management. Transit types, product categories,
and shipping destinations are key factors behind cargo loss severit y so strategies for
cargo loss prevention were developed.

Article 4 - Review of Multi-Supplier Inventory Models in Supply Chain Management

In this article an updated review of inventory models with multiple supply options are
discussed and their contributions from different managerial perspectives. Key strategic
aspects, including network design, supplier selection, competition, and contract coordination
are summarized. Multi-sourcing options of order splitting, order expediting, contingent
sourcing, transhipment, reverse logistics, and outsourcing are reviewed. Another focus lies on
giving a review with respect to performance criteria, sources of uncertainty and modeling
constraints. Optimal and non-optimal inventory control policies are reviewed.

Article 5 - An Innovative Shelf Life Model Based on Smart Logistic Unit for an
Efficient Management of the Perishable Food Supply Chain

Despite the recent interest towards food safety and control, it is generally difficult to
ensure full products traceability through industrial food chains, due to the lack of
efficient information and communication systems. Consequently, nowadays, the
protection of food products often ends at the gates of the producer without any
investigation about the status of their quality at the consumer's location. The aim of this
paper was the development of a supply chain monitoring system based on a smart
logistic unit (SLU) to support the integrated management of the food supply chain from
farm to fork in order to guarantee and control food safety and shelf life (SL) of
products in agreement with logistic efficiency and system sustainability. For this purpo se
we have conducted a research involving the selection of a perishable product
significantly affected by logistic decisions, the determination of the set parameters
representative of its quality and the development of a prototype of SLU, based on a
sensor network for monitoring the identified parameters. Finally, an experimental SL
model has been determined, based on the volatile organic compounds emitted from fruits
and monitored by the SLU. We have validated the model by simulating real transport
conditions and assessing the residual SL of the product at different time intervals.
