COVID-19: Managing supply chain risk and disruption – Deloitte


COVID-19 - Managing supply chain risk and disruption - Deloitte

Coronavirus impact highlights the need to transform traditional supply chain models

Deloitte authors highlight short-term actions companies can take to respond to business disruption and supply chain challenges from the global spread of COVID-19─and look ahead to the longer-term solution of digital supply networks.

Could COVID-19 be the black swan event that finally forces many companies, and entire industries, to rethink and transform their global supply chain model? One fact is beyond doubt: It has already exposed the vulnerabilities of many organizations, especially those who have a high dependence on China to fulfil their need for raw materials or finished products.

China’s dominant role as the “world’s factory” means that any major disruption puts global supply chains at risk. Highlighting this is the fact that more than 200 of the Fortune Global 500 firms have a presence in Wuhan, the highly industrialized province where the outbreak originated, and which has been hardest hit. Companies whose supply chain is reliant on Tier 1 (direct) or Tier 2 (secondary) suppliers in China are likely to experience significant disruption, even if, according to the most optimistic reports, conditions approach normalcy in China by April.
