eft talk Supply Chain risk in a recent report for both enablers and shippers.
WBS talk through the importance of optimising your material flow.
Lean methodology likes numbers. 5S. 6 losses. 7 wastes - well 8 if you count loss of human potential, or 9 if you include customer complaints.
How would you classify the risk in your customers' supply chain over the last year?
63% of shippers have seen their risk stay the same, with only 23% seeing an increase. Enablers have seen their customers' supply chain risk increase over the last year, but some 30% also saw the risk stay the same.
But the most important question is, why has their risk increased? 77.8% of shippers suggest global economic instability. While 16.7% of shippers suggest global economic conditions have decreased their risk.
