The hidden costs of broken supply chains
With tariffs so low, what's holding up cross-border trade?
October-December 2013
By: Jean-Pierre Fellenbok , Mark Gottfredson

• Do you have a list of the licensing regulations that apply to your product or service?

• Are there preferential rules or regulations that give local companies a leg up in the market? Will that affect your costs or competitiveness?

Border administration

• What percentage of shipments will be inspected at the border, on average? How does that compare with other markets?

• What is the typical delay time at a particular border or port, and what will that cost in terms of spoilage, theft or the need to stockpile additional inventories?

Supply chain is an important part when it comes to economic and in the whole industry. Businesses needs to invest to their operations so that they can be more competitive but they need to monitor the supply chain of course. If they don't monitor their supply chain costings it will be a big risk for them and they will have more expense rather than having an affordable and high quality suppy chain.
