Every company should watch out for weak links in its supply chain. Examples include: 1) legal risks; a supplier could be embroiled in a lawsuit or violation, 2) political risks; a supplier may operate in a politically unstable region (even nationally), and 3) transportation risks; weather or other disasters could compromise a supplier’s shipping routes. To cope, consider strategies such as diversifying your suppliers to avoid overreliance on one. Also, perhaps renegotiate contracts for less risky terms and access to better technology.
