Why are some countries more resistant to supply chain disruption or better able to bounce back?
According to Margareta Wahlström, United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Disaster Risk Reduction, this is a puzzle that world leaders are perpetually trying to solve.
Hence the inherent value in a new online interactive tool from FM Global that ranks countries by supply chain resilience.
The 2014 FM Global Resilience Index ranks the business resilience of 130 countries around the world.
Nine key drivers of supply chain risk are grouped into three categories: economic, risk quality and supply chain factors. These combine to form the composite index. Scores are bound on a scale of 0 to 100, with 0 representing the lowest resilience and 100 the highest resilience.
