For tier one and aftermarket suppliers, retaining customers through reliable logistics and delivery is paramount to success. But we live in an extraordinary era of rising rates, reduced network capacity, and material and labour shortages. Shortened order cycles and greater market volatility can hit tier suppliers particularly hard.

In this panel, experts from tier one supplier Benteler, diversified supplier and aftermarket distributor First Brands Group together with Maersk outline strategies specific to mitigating risk for tier suppliers. These include supplier management, balanced inventory, and reevaluating logistics IT systems and data.
