The Global Supply Chain Risk Report is a quarterly publication that looks at the level of supply chain risk faced by European companies with international supplier relationships.

Produced by Cranfield School of Management and Dun & Bradstreet, the report responds to a growing need for reliable information to support supply chain decisions within an increasingly complex and dynamic business environment.

Based on proprietary commercial data provided by Dun & Bradstreet concerning around 500,000 transactions each quarter, supply chain risk is assessed using four key metrics: supplier criticality, supplier financial risk, global sourcing risk and foreign exchange risk.

The resulting report provides businesses with a view of trends within their industry sector and across the wider economy. By analysing trends by sector, it also highlights areas for monitoring and consideration in procurement decisions.

The latest version of the report is available to download as a PDF, free of charge, via the link on the right of this page. Previous versions of the report are available below.
