The volatility of the supply chain has wreaked havoc on most retailers over the past few months.
The issue facing many businesses is that there is a greater volume of goods than the supply chain pipeline can adequately handle. The existing infrastructure does not have enough ships, containers, trains, trucks, or even dockworkers to process all the incoming goods. As a result, companies are being forced to pay significant premiums for the limited space that is available; hire private carriers to ensure that inventory, gets to their stores in time. This is especially true for the enormous number of seasonal products. In either case, the cost implications and impact on the bottom line are significant.
The biggest trend is that there is no trend right now. The notion of “set it and forget it” sounds good but in these unusual times does not work.
While many executives may have been caught off-guard at the onset, they now understand they need a long-term strategic plan that mitigates the volatility brought on by the supply chain or any other unexpected “event”. A tool that will help reduce their risks in the coming year and beyond.
