Navigating Supply Chain Vulnerabilities

The declaration of force majeure by this leading producer is a stark reminder of vulnerabilities in global supply chains. It highlights the need for companies to develop contingency plans. Companies must diversify their supplier base to reduce dependency on any single source.
