supply chain security

Supply chain security is an aspect of supply chain management that makes the supply chain or value chain more secure and reliable, identifies vulnerabilities and secures it against attacks.

Supply chain security is about managing risk and finding vulnerabilities and putting defenses in place to protect the supply chain. Such a supply chain extends from the production of a product, logistics with warehousing and shipping logistics, to delivery and installation. The individual measures affected by the security aspects lie in the delivery forms, customs documents and reporting information. The inspection and, above all, the securing of the cargo and its contents by means of alarm devices and security locks are further aspects of supply chain security, as is conduct in accordance with the rules in the form of compliance or such as the inspection of the transport employees.

The advantages of an intact and secure supply chain guarantee the ability to deliver, avoid loss of sales and protect the company from loss of image.
