Supply chain resilience
Daniel Swan
Senior partner
McKinsey & Company
Supply chain risks have always been an integral part of the industry and disruptions will continue to occur with greater frequency and potentially greater magnitudes; The current supply chain crisis has reduced global GDP by 1%. Global supply chains therefore need to be redesigned to deliver sustainability and strength – the question is how? Should rail systems and trucking be more regulated? How can retailers and intermediaries who abused traps to raise prices be held accountable? These questions are among the questions that need to be answered 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 port queues, delayed deliveries and price increases. The ongoing pandemic has turned what was once a well-tuned machine into a bubbly mess that’s fueling one of the worst inflations in decades. Unpredictable demand, especially among the most cash-strapped consumers, is only part of the challenge, however. Companies fearing a repeat of the supply chain delays that burned them last holiday season are scrambling to untangle the knots and regain control as the holiday season approaches.
