This study aimed to investigate how Brazilian supply chains (SCs) were affected by the economic and political crisis (2014 to 2016) and how supply chain risk management and resilience capabilities were used by these organizations to mitigate the consequences of this environmental turbulences. To accomplish with our goals, a qualitative research was conducted within three supply chains. Our findings indicated that the main impacts to the supply chains were demand volatility, suppliers’ financial health issues and cost increase. Those impacts affected differently companies depending on their position in the supply chain and revealed that organizations mainly adopt flexibility and visibility as resilience capabilities.
