Business Continuity in the Supply Chain: Minimizing Costs, Maximizing Strategy

As supply chains grow more and more complex, it is impossible to address all of the risks that make them vulnerable without the proper tools and support. To add to this complexity, today’s supply chains include more than just cargo; they also include critical infrastructure such as power grids, communications, information technology and other assets and services.

It’s a fact that global sourcing products and services increases the number of touch points. More touch points mean more hands, more exchanges, more methods, more border crossings, and more opportunity for disruption incidents; all translating to more vulnerable assets, more risk and increased demand for a strong business continuity management system.

At times of crisis, your business depends on your ability to secure, administer, and navigate your company’s network of business relationships. If you can effectively protect and manage your supply chain, the ability to productively respond to stresses can yield important benefits.
