The Achilles Supply Chain Resilience Index (ASCRI) is a time series index measuring changes in supply chain risk. The index measures underlying supply chain risk by country across six categories: Economic, Environmental, Labour Practices, Legal and Governance, Resilience, and Safety and Security.
ASCRI Report: Q2 2022
In the latest ASCRI report, we take a look at why supply chains are at their most fragile since the start of the century. With so many supply chain risks posed by such a diverse number of sources, what happens when some are unavoidable? While manufacturers have a pressing need to bolster inventories, the automotive sector in particular is being forced to re-think its reliance on just-in-time component sourcing. These issues, plus many more, are the result of inflationary pressures and component shortages stifling global trade.
