    Many companies have switched from “local” suppliers to “low cost” (and often distant) suppliers on the basis of cost, without considering the full cost of risks associated with these changes. As a result, the extended supply chain now has many additional points of potential failure, suggesting that new approaches to risk management can be beneficial. Many companies face increased exposures and potentially costly logistics lead times for critical products if unforeseen events emerge – as they seemingly will.

    In my view the overall cost of procurement is to be considered rather than just the cost of supplies from the supplier.
