Common Delays & Disruptions

Identifying possible situations before they occur is an excellent way for businesses to intercept potential disruptions. While disruptions aren’t 100% predictable, navigating through a delay is much easier when you’re prepared versus being reactive. Your customers will appreciate a sense of security knowing you’re ready for whatever disruptions you may encounter.

So what exactly should you prepare for? While not all of these disruptions may directly affect your industry, it’s always best for your team to be prepared. Here is a list of potential disruptions that our HBI team has planned for:
