Without logistics control towers, long distance links in your supply chain are vulnerable to many forms of disruption, from extreme weather events to cyber-attack. For companies that depend on timely delivery of products, components and materials, the control of those risks is a key strategic concern. It is becoming all the more pressing as customers’ service expectations continue to rise.
Identifying, managing and mitigating the impact of supply chain disruption is made especially difficult by the complex nature of today’s transportation systems. Shipments may use multiple transport modes each managed by a different stakeholder. Visibility into the location and status of those shipments can be limited, or non-existent. By the time a company learns there has been a problem in the chain, the damage may already have been done.
The risk of supply chain disruption is increased by multi-tiered supply chains. Weaknesses, interdependencies and single points of failure can hide deep within those networks. A problem in a port, warehouse or distribution hub in another continent can cause a chain reaction of lost production, delayed deliveries, lost sales and unhappy customers across the world.
