83% of organisations have increased supply chain investments

83 per cent of organisations have increased supply chain investments, according to research from Blue Yonder.

The study, which surveyed 250 supply chain decision-makers in the UK, found that 97 per cent of organisations have faced disruption over the past 12 months.

It also revealed that factors outside of company control and the resulting consequences varied from company to company, with organisations facing customer delays – 59 per cent – stalled production – 44 per cent – and staff shortages – 40 per cent. As a result, the supply chain has become a priority for nearly two thirds – 63 per cent – of businesses.

“Businesses are right to feel concerned when it comes to their supply chain,” said Wayne Snyder, vice president, retail industry strategy, EMEA, Blue Yonder. “In 2021 we saw unprecedented disruption, and as we look ahead, several macro factors on the horizon are likely to drive further interference."
