We lower your risks through resilient supply chains. 

Supply Chain Risk Management 

Risk reduction strategies

The coronavirus crisis has shown many companies that supply chains are exposed to a high level of risk. Supply chain managers must have a quickly functioning crisis management system in place to cope with delivery bottlenecks. Therefore, companies should use the lessons learned from the crisis to create a resilient supply chain in the future and to align it strategically. 

Supply Chain Risk Management is a proactive approach to managing risks along the entire value chain to counteract undesirable consequences with foresight and create a resilient supply chain.

The individual supply chain actors have to act reliably, especially in the current crisis, in order to ensure delivery capabilities along the entire supply chain and avoid bottlenecks. To achieve this stable value chain, risks should not be addressed as soon as they occur but rather proactively.

Forward-looking strategies

Risk management in the coronavirus pandemic

In addition to the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, cyber risks or scarcity of resources are just a few examples of factors changing the markets and impacting your supply chains. In addition, companies are becoming more and more agile and have a global production network. The coronavirus crisis has revealed and intensified the need for forward-looking concepts.

What are our objectives?

Supply Chain Risk Management is a proactive approach to managing risks along the entire value chain to counteract undesirable consequences with foresight and create a resilient supply chain.

It is essential to take a holistic view of the supply chain and understand cause-effect chains. The failure of a possibly small component can result in major disruptions in the entire supply chain and cause enormous costs.

One can use the latest technologies to create early warning systems for companies in order to identify and minimize risks in good time. For example, Tracking and Tracing enables the entire tracking of goods along the supply chain and can provide early information as to whether goods will arrive on time or whether there is a threat of a delay in delivery.

Thanks to the digital networking of the individual supply chain actors, information can also be exchanged in real-time in order to inform downstream actors in the supply chain about the current status in good time.

Risk analysis best practice

Our supply chain experts support you with the risk analysis of your supply chain to ensure a resilient value chain. For this purpose, the risks that can occur along the value chain are identified and assessed. The risk factors can be visualized in a risk matrix and regularly reviewed.

The probability of occurrence is compared with the impact of the event, and an assessment of the relevance of the respective risk is given. With the help of the transparency created, preventive countermeasures are designed for particularly critical risks. This can also lead to a restructuring of your supply chain. For example, the procurement strategies can be realigned, or the performance of existing suppliers can be evaluated in order to minimize supplier failures. Through risk monitoring, KPIs are tracked in real-time to identify deviations from the target state by the systems at an early stage. We would be happy to support you with our experience in this area to identify risks at an early stage.
