Managing Supply Chain Risk in Mexico – A Spend Matters PRO Analysis


Earlier today, we published a PRO research brief authored by Xavier Olivera on supply chain risk management in Mexico – what North American companies should pay attention to when working with Mexican and Latin American suppliers, and what Mexican companies should keep in mind. Make sure to check out the article, Supply Risk Management in Mexico: Tips and Analysis For Multinational Procurement Organizations, before heading home today.

The combination of these events with internally and externally focused cost reduction efforts (e.g., inventory reduction) has revealed the importance of risk management within supply chains, forcing companies to implement new elements of vigilance to avoid disruptions."

Xavier also shares insights from a recent study that showed how Mexican companies compare to other suppliers across the world in regard to risk management practices for the supply chain.
