Automotive supply chains need a resilience vaccine
Infor
Infor

Even though dictionary.com declared “pandemic” its Word of the Year for 2020, one could argue the term “supply chain” is a close second. 2020 was likely many people’s first time hearing about supply chains or experiencing the massive role they play in our day-to-lives.

Automotive suppliers, of course, have long been aware of the supply chain’s significance. Unfortunately, this knowledge didn’t necessarily make the events of 2020 any easier on them. What world events did do, however, is highlight areas of vulnerability and corresponding opportunities for improvement. One could say, in keeping with the 2020 Word of the Year, that the automotive supply chain needs its own vaccine of sorts: greater agility and resilience, developed from better visibility, communication, collaboration, and vigilance.
