DHL Report Identifies Four Ways for Companies to Bolster Supply Chain Resilience

A recent report from parcel delivery firm DHL has outlined four key strategies for companies to enhance their supply chain resilience in the face of geopolitical crises and other challenges. The study, titled "Supply Chain Diversification," emphasizes the importance of diversifying operations and global supply networks. The four target areas identified in the report are multi-shored supply networks, multi-sourcing, parallel modes of transportation, and concurrent or redundant logistics operations.

Katja Busch, Chief Commercial Officer and Head of DHL Customer Solutions & Innovation, highlighted the significance of resilient supply chains in light of recent events and expressed DHL's commitment to supporting customers in this endeavor. The report, developed in collaboration with Emeritus Professor Richard Wilding OBE, provides detailed definitions of the four dimensions and offers tangible customer case examples to help companies assess their diversification levels and devise suitable strategies for improvement.
