In the September issue of Logistics Management Magazine, Mark Pearson has written an excellent article on supply chain risk management (Pearson on Excellence p.22). Based on a survey of senior executives, the article names information technology and global economic turmoil as the most common and impactful drivers of supply chain risk. Pearson describes different supply chain risk management investments made by respondents and the ROI’s reported by management. I would add that export and import compliance is also a very big risk factor in supply chain management. Fines and penalties for non-compliance are high enough to be worthy of C-level attention. What you don’t know can hurt you.
