Update on Typhoon Hagibis

SHARE THIS

Typhoon Hagibis, one of the strongest storms to hit the Kantō region of Japan in decades, has caused widespread flooding in the area, with a death toll of more than 80. Two weeks after its deadly landfall, the region and its people are still recovering. As the infrastructure of Kantō’s industrial industry begins to be rebuilt, manufacturers worldwide are feeling Hagibis’s effects reverberate within the global supply chain.

Smith is available to help support those whose supply chains have been disrupted by this disaster so that they can keep their production moving even during this difficult time.
