BIC:SUPPLY CHAIN RESILIENCE REPORT 2019

NON-REPORTING OF SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTIONS IS AT AN ALL-TIME LOW, BUT CO-ORDINATED REPORTING HAS FALLEN:
 
Less than a quarter (23.3%) of organizations now report that their organization does not record, measure and report on supply chain disruptions – the lowest figure in the 10 years this report has been published. However, co-ordinated reporting has dropped from 30.0% to 25.0% - a disappointing figure given BCI research has shown an increased focus on holistic organizational resilience over the past year.
 

testimonials

I was delighted to attend the 2012 VSC Supply Chain conference as a speaker. I found the conference to be as professional and well organised as any I've attended in Europe. Great content, interactive and a superb venue set a great foundation for information to be shared and networks to be developed. I'm eagerly anticipating 2013.
