This explanatory report examines the levers Australian suppliers use to provide resilience in their supply chains and how these are used to mitigate disruption events. 

The report focuses on resilience to events that put the system under intense pressure, but do not significantly interrupt the market’s ability to function. Companies supplying petroleum products to Australia were consulted on their resilience systems and to obtain examples of how they used these processes to manage disruptions.
