How Smaller Manufacturers Can Develop Risk Management Strategies for their Supply Chains

As a smaller manufacturer, you continue to be more vulnerable to global supply chain disruptions than larger companies. Having to pay for more materials, parts or shipping is a difficult dynamic as you may not be able to absorb short-term losses or even a lower margin.
