This Global Supply Chain Risk Report is a joint publication by Cranfield School of Management and Dun & Bradstreet. Experts from Cranfield’s Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management have analysed Dun & Bradstreet’s transaction and risk data to create this report, which investigates actual supply chain risks faced by European companies with international footprints.

The report responds to a growing need for reliable information to support supply chain decisions, within an increasingly complex and dynamic business environment. The aim of the report is to provide decision-makers with a source of robust evidence and analysis concerning supply chain risks. To do so, we rely on a database of around 600,000 anonymised transactions every quarter between European buyers and suppliers located in more than 150 countries. This allows us to provide a comprehensive picture of global supply chain risks.

The report is broken down into two sections:

  1.  Sectoral Risk Analysis: a comparison by industry sector of four key metrics: Supplier Criticality, Supplier Financial Risk, Global Sourcing Risk, and Foreign Exchange Risk.
  2.  Supply Chain Risk Grid: a chart providing a comprehensive overview of risk exposure.
