Supply Chain Mapping

Assorted data hoovered up from disparate systems is not going to help an enterprise outline a distribution plan. The chances of success are virtually nil. On the other hand, by mapping their supply networks, with assistance from our experts, clients have been able to identify the most effective transportation routes and reduce logistics costs. That’s not all, businesses are also realizing that supply chain mapping is a sure-shot way to uncover potential risks (e.g., reputational, environmental) on the supply side.

Supplier Sustainability Analysis

Workers at supplier businesses are entitled to a safe workplace free of hazards and fair working conditions. There is growing pressure on businesses to subsume fair trade, safe working conditions, and upstream suppliers’ environmental considerations within their bidding systems. Sustainable procurement is the new mantra, and true to this, our practitioners are enabling clients to walk the talk on sustainability and, furthermore, ensure their vendors also measure up to these sustainability expectations.

Supplier Risk Analysis

An unhealthy obsession with supplier costs has many businesses chasing low-cost vendors who often cut corners on due diligence compliance. Unscrupulous third-party supply chain participants constitute the biggest source of reputational risk for organizations. Cost can never be a sole consideration for reckoning supplier risks, so taking a more detailed view of risk, we assign risk scores to suppliers based on multiple factors, and clients get alerts when the score threatens to exceed a certain threshold.
