The rapid globalization of supply chains has made them vulnerable to disruptions such as economic unrest, demand fluctuations, or natural or man-made disasters with potentially damaging long- and short-term impacts on the business.
Enterprises need resilient supply chains to minimize the negative impacts of disruptions on revenues, costs and customers. Not surprisingly, effective supply chain risk management is key to building and maintaining resilient supply chains.

Extensive Risk Management Portfolio
Keeping supply chain optimization at the core, GEP embeds supply chain risk assessment and management into your supply chain strategy. Our focus on supply chain risk spans multiple dimensions, including geopolitical, environmental, industry, reputational, financial and operational.
We further segment these into short-term, medium-term and long-term risks to better prioritize action plans. We use our proprietary Supply Chain Risk Management Model to aggregate risks across the supply chain and catalog mitigation strategies for effectively addressing the identified risks.
The visual output allows organizations to see their risk map and facilitate cross-functional dialogue to mitigate the risks.
