International Supply Chain

Brett Perkins from our team (pictured left) has put the following article together about the international supply chain. 

"We are currently experiencing unprecedented change in Australia’s trading relationships within the South East Asia region and international uncertainty as a result of the US elections and enduring impact of COVID-19.

Traditional supply chains and the status quo are coming under increasing pressure as existing value chains and loyalties are tested through a combination of international trade relationships, diplomatic and political pressure.

The emergence of the Supply Chain Resilience Initiative (SCRI), the result of a trilateral engagement between Japan, India and Australia is one such development that looks to respond to these uncertainties.    

Our multi-national team that covers the Asian, Indo-Pacific, American and European geographies is able to immediately leverage our local knowledge of in-country business customs and trusted relationships to offer a level of reach that is difficult to establish quickly or easily.   

Let our extensive international experience and global network strengthen your ability to solve existing problems or identify new opportunities across:       
  • Product Sourcing (with a focus on SE Asia) and Supplier Management 
  • Domestic and International: 
    • Supply Chain and Logistics 
    • Product Distribution 
  • Governance, Risk and Compliance
