Events that are beyond your control

Even with the best systems and practices in place, any business big or small can be brought to a standstill by events beyond their control. This was recently demonstrated at the macro level in the United States where it has been reported US industrial production slipped by 0.1 percent in May 2018 (source: Seattle Times) when there was a significant fire at a spare parts supplier for trucks.

Not only is this a problem for the supply company but of course the knock-on effect for many businesses in a range of industries is considerable. Obviously, all efforts would be made to remedy the situation as quickly as possible but even with the best will in the world it will take time for things to return to normal.

This situation serves as a timely reminder to consider the supply chain for spare parts for all businesses. How dependent is your business on certain suppliers and inventory and what would happen if there was a disruption to the supply of vital spare parts?
