Supply Chain Assessment Tool

The AML Overview is a powerful supply chain assessment tool that has been carefully designed to grade risk, identify gaps and create opportunities across your international business operations.

Managing economic supply lines can present as a challenge to all businesses, from start-ups to multinational corporates.

Business growth can create gaps and blind spots in the supply chain, while business consolidation can lead to waste and lost efficiencies.

Risk profiles shift quickly in volatile conditions, opportunities can be missed in emerging markets and changes in global trade practices, compliance and laws can be missed.

The AML Overview is a tool used by our Global Trade Advisory team to quickly assess supply chain health, grade risk areas, identify how to close gaps and provide practical steps to implement.

Why it is important to review and update your supply chain strategy regularly

Changes to your business or the environment your business operates in can result in obsolete systems that no longer add value and disconnect important links in your supply chain.  A regular assessment of your supply chain can help business to:  

  1. Clarify insurance coverage, risk of carriage and cost of risk
  2. Understand areas of financial exposure and opportunities to improve cashflow
  3. Discover changes in global trade practices, compliance and laws
  4. Decipher ways for creating efficiency in procurement functions
  5. Achieve cost reduction in fulfilment operations
  6. Identify how to globalise and mitigate supply risks
  7. Create alignment with service providers

Minimal preparation is needed because the AML Overview starts with an initial assessment deigned to discover your objectives, challenges and blind spots.  A deeper review will be recommended for areas where gaps are identified.

How it works

The AML Overview is conducted in three phases.  First, an initial 45-minute consultation which includes a data-point assessment and discussion about the results.  Second, we conduct a deeper analysis of the assessment and provide you with a detailed report.  Third, we provide strategic recommendations and advice.

Creating more value

Some of our recommendations may include a deeper review, audit or steps to be taken.  In many cases you will be able to do this within your own business, however we may also offer additional services that create value.
