What’s your supply chain strategy in this perilous times?

Early Last week I went into a super market to buy some groceries and I requested for a particular snack. But to my utmost surprise I was told that the company that manufactures it have not been able to produce  for about 4 days because of shortage of raw materials for production. I couldn’t believe it because this is a company that makes a staple snack that Nigerians have come to love. It must be a time of great loss for them.

Surprisingly I ran into a high level staff of that company at a Church that I attended yesterday; she used to be a  colleague of mine. After exchanging pleasantries, I brought up the issue and she confirmed it that the Supply Chain crisis of 2021 has really affected them as they are not able to get materials for production the way they should, and this has resulted to extended downtimes.

Desperate times calls for desperate. Companies do not have to shut down because of this shortages. There needs to be deliberate actions to at least minimize the effects of this crisis. And all this has to do with long term strategic planning.
