Exclusive highlights on risks in global supply chains
Traditional integrated manufacturing results in high levels of internal risk due to high levels of capital outlay and inventory holding.
Extended supply chains are more vulnerable to external threats, but on the other hand, such networks have also dispersed risks to a number of markets by reducing centralisation.
Another factor that impacts significantly on the extent of disruption is the location of the event within the supply chain. The further upstream it occurs, the longer the disruption to supply.
The characteristics of some supply chains make them more vulnerable to supply chain threats than others.
Exclusive highlights on the structure of the logistics industry
The global logistics industry has come about as a result of a confluence of demand-side and supply-side trends
World trade has been very volatile over the past decade, with underlying development being driven – until very recently – by strong growth of export and import traffic from China and related economies.
The world’s economy is moving from globalisation to regionalisation of supply chains. This involves a transformation from East–West and West–East flows to complex networks of developed and emerging markets.
Distribution strategies have been largely influenced by the trade-off between the cost of moving goods to market and the cost of holding inventories.
