Reduce your Costs and Supply Chain risk!

Events over the past two years have demonstrated the dangers of depending upon single suppliers and/or suppliers from a single country - together with the added risks of increased transport costs and delays. The Supply Chain challenge for the future is how to diversify, improve efficiency and keep costs to a minimum - all at the same time.

(As an aside, the search for new Suppliers also opens up new market opportunities for manufacturers and produces who can provide security of supply - even at a cost premium.)

In order to find and assess potential new Suppliers:

  1. Search the Expo's Exhibition Hall.
  2. Access & search the Kompass Directory.
  3. Check potential Suppliers’ credit references.

  1. ITC's Export Potential Map (Find the countries with the greatest potential).
