Supply chains are more exposed than ever before

Around the world supply chains are struggling. From the saga of the Ever Given and the Suez Canal, ongoing Brexit confusion, and the continued disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic - almost every business is starting to feel the strain.

'Logistics resilience' is no longer a corporate buzzword, but a business imperative.

If you're suffering any of the following issues, it's time to get serious about supply chain resilience:

  • Your suppliers are consistently late or have been unable to deliver goods
  • You're feeling the impact from the shortage of hauliers, in UK, Europe and beyond
  • Your logistics costs have soared
  • You've had orders delayed at borders between EU and UK
  • You've had to close warehouses or stores due to staff illnesses or government mandate

These events show that 'logistics resilience' is no longer a corporate buzzword, but a business imperative.

This Resilience whitepaper from 7bridges, the A.I powered logistics platform, uses real examples to illustrate the danger faced by supply chain fragility and offers practical advice on how to rapidly and effectively address this in your organisation.
