Resilinc seizes the day and releases annual supply chain risk report — Carpe Diem


Despite popular belief, or what people might think, the Covid pandemic was not the biggest source of disruption for supply chains in 2020, according to the latest Annual Supply Chain Risk Report released this week by supply chain data monitoring, mitigation and risk analytics solutions provider Resilinc. Man-made events dominated disruption in 2020, accounting for 83% of disruptions. The two greatest disruptors of supply last year were factory fires, and mergers and acquisitions.

“Supply chains are highly complex; there is inherent risk everywhere you look and operate,” the study writes. “There is no such thing as a risk-free world and certainly no such thing as a risk-free supply chain." Read more on the report and about Spend Matters' coverage of the SCRM topic.
