Key Areas for Managing Supply Chain Disruptions

Develop strategies to address global supply chain disruptions

In order to manage global supply chain disruptions, organizations must develop a comprehensive risk management strategy. Factors impacting the dynamics of international supply chains leading to increased uncertainty in logistics operations at the tactical, operational, and strategic levels must be analyzed to implement risk mitigation tactics. Risks associated with supply chains at a country level should be identified to understand the impact of COVID-19 on supply chains.

Ensure compliance with local laws

Companies having global supply chains need to deal with the uncertainty in local laws and cultural norms that may impact a business. The physical transport of materials and finished goods has come at a risk, increasing complexities and uncertainties. Understanding the current scenario and norms that impact supply chain operations, uncertainty in supplier reliability and lead times can help companies prepare effective action plans to mitigate supply chain disruption occurring due to pandemic.
