Supply Chain Disruption – Core Routes and Respective Choke Points

Core routes support the most important commercial shipping flows that service major markets, and secondary routes are mostly connectors between smaller markets. Choke points are specific locations that play a strategic role in supply chain networks due to geography, geopolitics, and trade flows. They can be classified into two main categories:​ primary choke points and secondary choke points.

Supply Chain Management (SCM) – Key Solutions

The key solutions to overcome supply chain disruptions are advanced data analytics, alternative energy sources, digital twins, factory floor digitalization, reshoring, nearshoring, and friendshoring, ​recycling, social media, and synthetics.

Advanced data analytics: Key technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), and blockchain among others can provide insights into the supply chain health and performance of companies.

Alternative energy sources: Local alternative energy sources will reduce reliance on external countries for power.

Digital Twins: Supply chain managers can use digital twins to identify risks early and model solutions after monitoring all aspects of the value chain in real time.

Scope

  • This report looks at global supply chains, the issues disrupting them, and the steps companies can take to mitigate supply chain risks.
  • It examines in detail the reasons behind today’s supply chain disruption. These include global economic turmoil, COVID-19, and the Ukraine war.
  • It provides examples of complex, global supply chains.
  • It analyzes technologies that can be used to reconfigure supply chains and deliver efficiencies, including advanced data analytics, alternative energy sources, digital twins, factory florr digitalization, recycling, and synthetics.

Reasons to Buy

  • Up until 2020, supply chains were incredibly resilient and efficient. Everything was delivered seamlessly on time, and at a low cost—to the benefit of companies and consumers. As such, few people were focused on them. According to GlobalData’s Social Media Analytics, supply chains were mentioned on Reddit and Twitter only 1,908 times in 2019.
  • Supply chain vulnerabilities have been exposed by several recent events, including COVID-19, the semiconductor shortage, and the Ukraine war. Supply chain disruption is the new normal. In 2021, social media mentions of supply chains reached 25,636, a thirteen-fold increase from 2019. The world order that enabled globalization and those resilient, efficient supply chains is splintering. A new order of de-globalization will replace it.
  • This report will help you understand the causes of supply chain disruption and provide companies with actionable insight into how they can be re-engineered to withstand these events.
