NC4 Supply Chain Risk Management Solutions

Supply Chain Risk Management Solutions

Earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, floods and other disasters have the power to disrupt the world's economies. The 2011 Japan earthquake is a case in point, causing the largest disruption to the global supply chain in modern history. The extreme damage wrought from the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power plant meltdowns took its toll on many of the world's vital supply chains.

But what of smaller events like an industrial fire at a manufacturing facility causing a shortage in component parts, or a port strike or train derailment that causes delays in critical shipments? Timely information on events that may not get international media attention allows you to react more quickly, avoiding supply chain disruption.

At the core of Supply Chain Risk Management lies risk visibility, a key differentiator for resilient supply chains. NC4 Risk Center™ gives you the ability to map locations and contact information for key suppliers in your supply chain. It provides you with real-time intelligence to minimize any downtime.
