A local strike at an Indonesian supplier, or a fire breaking out at a Chinese factory, are incidents that frequently go unreported by your local media. This means that these events will get reported back to you by your supplier with a significant time lag—if they get reported at all. Thus, to stay informed of any potential or current risks affecting your supply chain, you must monitor thousands of suppliers in a multitude of languages and countries, which is almost impossible to do on your own.

27.8% of organisations reported more than 20 supply chain disruptions during 2020, up from just 4.8% in 2019. Organisations blamed COVID-19 for the dramatic increase, although European respondents reported disruptions caused by Brexit-related issues.
With the coronavirus crisis still looming over us, anyone in supply chain management will vividly remember the struggle of keeping up with production and operations as factories shut down, and delivery routes seized up. What if there was a solution which could pick up on all factory statuses and provide you with a risk prediction for future shutdowns? What if you could prepare for the next crisis well in advance?
Purchasing departments’ daily bread and butter is the selection of new suppliers. The decisions are mostly based on financial data and supplier assessments, all of which are lagging behind, as data is only reported periodically. They also fail to include incidents at suppliers, such as strikes, fires, etc. What if there was a way to screen a supplier and get historical information, as well as any current risks, up-to-the-minute?

COVID-related disruptions were more likely to occur beyond Tier 1: The importance of knowing your suppliers’ suppliers was emphasised in 2021, when respondents reported that
of COVID-related disruptions were due to disruptions in Tier 2 and beyond. Although this year’s research shows that organisations’ due diligence beyond Tier 1 is improving, COVID-19 has served as a tool to uncover where the gaps in processes lie.
