Supplier Risk Analysis Assists a Prominent Transportation Services Provider Reduce the Risk of Supplier Failures

Mar 5, 2018

Overview of the Transportation Services Industry

The transportation services industry encompasses several sub-sectors including subways, municipal buses, goods transport systems, and other similar modes of transport. Just like the other peer industries, the leading players operating in the transportation services sector are looking at expanding their business units to establish their presence in the market. The transportation services sector is a capital-intensive one, and the demand for these services is further driven by the macroeconomic trends in global exports and imports.

Here are a few factors that may curtail the growth of the transportation services industry:

  • Economic factors: Transportation projects may have an adverse impact on the community’s economic development objectives including employment, business activity, property values, productivity, and investments. The main aim of such projects revolves around improving the overall accessibility while reducing transportation costs. Hence, it becomes necessary to consider both the positive and negative impacts of economic factors.
  • Community impacts: These include the impact of a transportation project on adjacent communities beyond specific factors that adversely affect the direct users of transportation facilities. It is also referred to as ‘social impacts’ and includes changes in walking environments, views, noise, and land use mix and community cohesion. Also, community impacts serve as a significant decision factor when transportation services providers are weighing both the adverse and distributional effects of proposed projects.

To counter these challenges and identify the potential risks in the supply chain, organizations are opting for supplier risk analysis solutions. Supplier risk analysis solutions help businesses to identify, monitor, detect, and mitigate threats to maintain supply chain continuity and profitability.request free proposal
