Commerce today involves an increasingly complicated supply chain ecosystem. Companies rely on suppliers and buyers across the globe, most of whom they’ve never met. They use multiple carriers and modes of transportation, across international borders, with different languages, currencies and laws. This ever-changing landscape means that companies of all sizes must be more diligent than ever when it comes to managing their supply chain — and their risk. In addition, e-commerce has revolutionized purchase behaviors, creating loftier customer expectations, and putting increased pressure on sellers to find new ways to meet those needs. Global networks and tight time constraints can amplify the impact from unpredictable events, like theft, damage, weather and natural disasters. This puts even more pressure on a company’s supply chain, and its bottom line. To better understand these issues, UPS Capital® commissioned Harris Poll to conduct research into the attitudes and behaviors of U.S. busi

Transportation risk comes in many forms and can be very hard, if not impossible, to predict. These include extreme weather, theft, hijacked trailers, global crises, cargo lost at sea, catastrophic truck or rail accidents, truck fires and a whole lot more. In 2014, the University of Tennessee Global Supply Chain Institute published a white paper titled Managing Risk in the Global Supply Chain. The most surprising finding in the research was that even though 100% of supply chain executives acknowledged insurance as a highly effective risk mitigation tool, it was simply not on their radar screen, nor in their purview. Yet, the National Cargo Security Council estimates that there is an annual global financial impact from cargo loss of $50 billion.

Good coffee is more than just a drink - it's an art. And coffee connoisseurs (distributors, retailers, and consumers) want to be sure of the authenticity of the art they buy. But given the complex supply chain and the number of stakeholders involved in getting coffee from the farm to the cup, it is almost impossible to ascertain the lineage, health, and origin of your coffee.

Whether you know it as Industry 4.0, the 4th Industrial Revolution, or Smart Industry, Manufacturing is going through a deep transformation, with changes that are centered around digitalization. While most industries are already on this digitalization path, the disruption is more visible and pronounced in manufacturing because it is expanding virtual data and processes into environments that have been fundamentally about physical products. This transformation has already started, and its impact is expected to be massive. Technical, economic, and social changes are expected across the whole manufacturing ecosystem, with jobs shifting from offshoring back to nearshoring. Strong technology elements driving this digital revolution include 3D printing, robotizing and automation, smart factory with IoT and machine learning, and supply chain digitization. Their impact is profound.

With the cost of manufacturing in China escalating, companies are increasingly looking to Southeast Asia for an alternative to meet their outsource manufacturing needs. Emerging as the leading alternative to China, Vietnam is now a destination choice for outsource manufacturing due to the unique financial advantages it can provide companies, including those in high-tech segments such as medical and commercial aerospace. In addition to lowering total costs, Vietnam offers companies a larger labor force, strong IP protection, and reliable quality in the manufacturing process, among other benefits. Moving their contract manufacturing to Vietnam can provide companies an excellent foundation for long-term profits and sustained growth.

Digital transformation is poised to change the supply chain more profoundly than any other functional area and more dramatically than at any point in its history in terms of driving efficiency and resiliency to disruption. In the context of the challenges facing supply chains, both now and in the future, it becomes clear that the old ways of working will not suffice and that even best-in-class performance today is unlikely to be good enough in the future. It is the view of IDC that the supply chain must become a "thinking" supply chain, one that is intimately connected to all data sources, enabled with comprehensive and fast analytics, openly collaborative through cloud-based commerce networks, conscious of cyberthreats, and cognitively interwoven. According to IDC supply chain research, technology is emerging as a prime driver of change, particularly artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
