Drought in China delays raw goods production. New government regulations and tariffs put some of your suppliers into noncompliance and increase manufacturing costs. A strike at a busy port means your products get stuck in shipping containers. Then there's a possible US railroad strike and increased gas prices worldwide. It's a perfect storm of supply chain challenges.
The result? Product shortages, price increases, and chronic uncertainty for companies of all sizes across all industries. And your customers still expect free next-day delivery.
In other words, it's a typical day in supply chain management.
As a result of all this disruption, supply chain managers are struggling. Thankfully, cloud services allow organizations to develop a more secure, scalable, and predictive way of working. Over the past 15 years, cloud providers have been creating global infrastructure capabilities that – if harnessed correctly – can transform your supply chain.
