Discover the global impact of supply chain disruptions in our latest supply chain management white paper

Companies of all kinds have had to endure massive uncertainty in the late 2010s and early 2020s. The impact of supply chain disruption has been enormous, forcing decision-makers to rapidly increase their risk management capabilities. Now, a new white paper from Interos reveals the global scope of supply chain challenges, while pointing the way towards strategies that can mitigate future threats. 

Based on survey data from 900 senior decision-makers at large U.S. and EU enterprises, the white paper explains why disruptions cost organizations, on average, $184M in lost revenue every year. That’s not counting the price of damage to brand reputations, or the risks of failing to meet ESG best practices.

It’s time for decision-makers to confront the impact of supply chain disruptions head-on. As new cyber and geopolitical risks emerge, organizations are seeing the gaps and inefficiencies in their risk management efforts – yet 66% are not assessing their supply chains on a continuous basis.

In order to stay on top of supply chains, companies are adopting automatic supply chain monitoring strategies that leverage cutting-edge AI and machine learning. When companies can learn about and react to emerging crises in near-real-time, they can de-risk global supply chains and cut the potential cost of supply chain disruptions. It’s the only way to move beyond a costly status quo.
