The current shutdown of non-essential travel in most of the world’s major industrial and manufacturing economies has brought the fragile nature of many supply chains into focus.
Supply chains usually rely on dozens of processes working in complete harmony – and with perfect timing – across multiple companies and locations. Components and materials clock up significant mileage as they travel between manufacturing sites and cross international borders. The COVID 19 crisis has severely impacted this in many cases.
But even before this unprecedented lockdown, some foresighted companies have been strengthening their supply chain by adopting vertical integration – the use of a single skilled supplier to manage large parts of the supply chain more proactively and effectively.
There are major advantages in consolidating supply chain management functions within a single reliable and capable supplier. Vertical integration reduces the number of points of weakness in a supply chain and can also reduce the carbon footprint of components and the time they take to produce.
