Global Volatility & Risk: The Imperative for Supply Chain Agility
According to Dun & Bradstreet’s CIPS Risk Index, global supply chain risk continues to hover near its all-time high reached in Q4 2016. Changing regulations, shifts in international policy, and a growing wave of nationalism continue to reshape global markets and supply chain strategies.
