The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted global supply chain networks in unprecedented ways. The virus' business impacts build upon other major supply chain challenges, such as geopolitical uncertainty, regulatory changes, supply chain reconfigurations and an increase in the number of natural disasters. Companies that rely on supply chain networks need to proactively address these evolving challenges as well as other hidden risks to improve resiliency to avoid costly disruptions to production.

Latest Supply Chain LinkedIn Poll

In our recent informal LinkedIn poll on how companies manage the physical security of their supply chains, an overwhelming majority of respondents selected a comprehensive approach that consists of end-to-end assessments, spot checks, and targeted reviews of their supplier’s suppliers (fourth parties). This likely reflects the acknowledgement that a multipronged approach to managing risk is most effective. However, while most effective, this approach simultaneously exposes a company to risk given the challenge in efficiently operationalizing a multi-step process on something as complex as a global supply chain. Random checks on low risk suppliers while skipping higher risks ones is likely just as ineffective as not conducting any checks at all. In a world of finite resources, companies need to implement a risk-based approach to most effectively and efficiently manage physical security risks across their end-to-end supply chain.
