Securing your supply chain 

Supply chain mapping - what is it and how can it help?

It's important to understand the parts of your supply chain which might be impacted by Brexit. 

Supply chain mapping is a straightforward exercise to help identify risk points in your supply chain. These risks should be prioritised and courses of action agreed upon. But, it's essential to involve the right people in this activity. For example, you might want to include supply chain managers, buyers, warehouse staff, technical staff and finance staff.

The purpose of the map is to help visualise the complexity of a supply chain and use the teams’ technical expertise to identify potential risk points. If supply chain mapping is a new concept and you'd like further advice, contact the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service (SMAS).
