Is it time to bring supply chains home?

Back in 2013 we published an article in our annual SRM report entitled “Is it time to bring supply chains home?” The strap line was “Global sourcing has been helping businesses to reduce costs for many years, but is it time to think again about that long and vulnerable supply chain?”

In that article we spoke at some length about the increased risks associated with global supply chains and how in the years preceding a number of extraordinary events had occurred that have had a severe impact on supply chains and how they illustrated the range of risks inherent in global sourcing. We even went so far as to show a five year timeline listing the global events that all to some extent had caused supply chain disruption.
