Newly Added Session at the Ethical Sourcing Forum

The Key to Successful Supply Chain Management
Feb 7, 2012 1:30 PM ET

Most companies only have good information on 10% to 15% of their direct suppliers. Transparency, Trust and Traceability of supplier facilities is a critical pre-requisite to Managing Corporate Values and Risk.

The shocking reality is that most retailers do not know where their products come from hence traceability is a real challenge due to the complex supply chains networks of intermediaries, subcontractors, domestic importers, wholesalers and constantly changing facility locations and contact details.   In today's world, the pre-requisite to managing reputational risk in your supply chain starts with knowing who your real suppliers and manufactures are and be able to answer the following question:
  • Who exactly are my suppliers?

  • How many direct vs. in-direct suppliers do I have?

  • What is my level of traceability & trust

  • Are my brands exposed to practices happening in my manufacturing facilities?

This presentation will showcase a new solution for:

  • Discovering and Screening New Suppliers

  • Managing living Profiles of Existing Approved Suppliers

  • Capacity Building Tools- Quality, Social, Environmental and Security
