 In a highly competitive environment, building resilient supply chains plays an extremely important role in ensuring the regular flow of material. The main problem in this issue is the lack of a common understanding of the concept of supply chain resilience and the main characteristics of a sustainable chain. This article analyzes the main components of the concept of supply chain sustainability, presents the classification of possible risks leading to failures, and the model of a viable supply chain. Scientific approaches to definition, evaluation and improvement of resilience from the point of view of domestic and foreign research works are also considered.

Based on the results of this work, it was concluded that in many works of modern domestic and foreign researchers, resilient supply chains are endowed with many similar features and that there is a sufficiently large potential for further research in the field of assessing the resilience of chains. Key areas for improving resilience were also highlighted.
