Though there is inherent uncertainty about the future, a supply chain network risk analysis can be conducted; by using information available, the future business environment can be characterized. Network design decisions have a significant impact on performance of the supply chain. Though designing a supply-chain network can cut costs within a company, it is important to note the supply chain is not static but rather a continually improving model and adapt in response. The allocation of supply sources and markets to facilities has a significant impact on performance because it affects total production, inventory and transportation costs incurred by the supply chain to gratify customer demand. Good network design decisions increase supply chain profits, whereas poor network design hurts profit.
In the export trade, goods and services are sold and shipped out of the jurisdiction of the country and customs authorities. While export to developed countries, Bangladesh gets some tariff facilities. It is nothing but helping the developing countries in export trade and industrialization, on the other hand, they regulate some products to enter their country at a lower price. Currently, Bangladesh is enjoying tariff-free market access for 90 per cent to 100 per cent products in all the developed countries except the United States. Tariff-free and low-tariff market access facilities in the developed and some developing countries immensely benefited Bangladesh. Bangladesh High Commissioner to Ottawa wrote that quality of Bangladesh’s apparel products as well as efficient supply-chain mechanism has largely contributed to doubling bilateral trade in a decade.
In drop-sip model, product is shipped directly from manufacturer end bypassing a retailer. Benefits of aggregation can be achieved, if the manufacturer can keep some of its inventory at the retailer end on and as needed basis. In addition, drop-shipping offers manufacturer an opportunity to postpone customization until the customer has placed order finally. Response times tend to be long, because the order has to be transmitted from retailer to the manufacturer and shipping distance are generally longer from the manufacturer’s centralizing site. Order visibility is very important in the context of manufacturer storage, because two stages in the supply chain are involved in every customer order. But a manufacturer storage network is likely to have difficulty handling returns, so that customer satisfaction may be hurt. Because, each order may involve more than one manufacturer.
Supply Chain Integration help in reducing product delays by improving the efficiency of the supply chains. The product delays are largely a by-product of mismatch in information and dis-coordination between the delivery, warehousing, and trading partners. This brings visibility to all parts of the supply chain and helps in giving adequate information about each step that ensures compliance, adherence to the safety standards and product quality. This helps in making supply chain agile and scale-able and gives confidence to the stakeholders to make sure the best practices are implemented at all the level of supply chain operations.
