Efficiency and reliability of shipping both domestically and cross-border are paramount to supply chains. The maturity and effectiveness of logistics providers can impact overall supply chain performance for both service and costs. As highlighted above, congestion at ports is a key factor in determining continuity in supply of raw materials and movement of finished goods. Carbon reduction measures should be built into supply chain design at all stages given the long-term nature of the decisions being made. Doing so will help ensure companies are in a position to meet future sustainability targets demanded by consumers, investors and internal stakeholders.

Minimising taxes and duties can often result in complex entity structures , product and transaction flows that may impact on supply chain efficiency and lead times. Companies need to ensure that the total cost of supply consider all factors.
