Supply Chain Resiliency
Daniel Swan
Senior Partner
McKinsey & Company
Risks to supply chain have always been an inherent part of the industry and disruptions will continue to happen with more frequency and potentially larger magnitudes; The current supply chain crisis has reduced global GDP by 1 per cent. Global supply chains therefore must be reengineered to afford sustainability and strength – the question is, how? Should railway systems and trucking be more regulated? How can retailers and middlemen who have abused pitfalls to raise prices be held accountable? These are among the questions that need to be addressed to make the supply chain industry more resilient.
Global retailers are already bracing for a busy shipping season and a volatile supply chain ahead of the holidays full of long lines at ports, delayed deliveries, and price increases. The ongoing pandemic has turned what was once a well-tuned machine into a backfiring, glitchy mess that is fueling some of the worst inflation in decades. Unpredictable demand, particularly among the most cash-strapped consumers, is only part of the challenge, however. Companies fearing a repeat of the supply chain delays that burnt them last holiday season, are working to untangle the knots and bring things back under control as we go into the holiday season.
