We investigate the types and management of risks faced within the supply chain of a large US retailer. Based on relevant frameworks from the literature, we categorized the risks into inherent or high frequent risks and disruption or infrequent risks. We investigate mitigation strategies for dealing with these risks, and we identify generic strategies that could handle most risk types as well as specific strategies for handling particular risks.
