Dealing with Supply Chain and Logistics Risk Insomnia.
  • Supply chain professionals are increasingly facing a challenge known as Insomnia, which negatively impacts efficiency and resilience. Addressing this issue is crucial, considering the various risks involved: geopolitical conflicts, currency fluctuations, port congestions/strikes, pandemics, shifting consumer demands, fuel price changes, and environmental regulations
  • Understanding the demand plan is the initial step in mitigating supply chain risks. Collaborative Planning Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) is a shared ecosystem approach to planning that enhances visibility and speeds up decision-making, making supply chains more resilient.
  • The second step involves sustainable procurement that considers the economy, society, and environment. Digital procurement, like E-auctions, can enhance efficiency and secure favorable prices. Diversifying suppliers and clear spend management are strategies to manage delays and raw material shortages.
