Adapting supply chains in an era of uncertainty

Amid ever-changing technological, economic and regulatory challenges, businesses need effective supply chain management that will accelerate growth, increase efficiency and offer new and differentiated value for their customers.

By Christopher Bacey


Given unexpected technologies and shifting or uncertain regulatory and tax policies, disruption is becoming business as usual. As a result, companies are re-evaluating the economic and risk profiles associated with the way their supply chains are organized.




“It’s clear that supply chains of the future will change with new regulations and uncertainty," says Brian Higgins, KPMG's Supply Chain leader. "Flexibility and speed are paramount.”

While all the ramifications are not fully clear, this uncertainty will continue – and so will the questions: How will this impact the supply chain of the future? How should companies adapt their supply chains? What impacts will regulatory and tax reform have?

To hear more about how companies will need to reevaluate the economics and risk profiles associated with the way their supply chains are organized, watch as Higgins discusses the topic of “Supply Chain Risk and the Future” in this video.
