CLAREMONT, CALIFORNIA – October 17, 2023 – The Israel-Hamas conflict shines a spotlight on the vulnerability of supply chains in the face of political upheavals. LMA Consulting Group, a leading Manufacturing and Supply Chain consulting firm, advises clients on fortifying their supply chains, ensuring resilience and safeguarding profitability.
Manufacturing and Supply Chain Consultant Lisa Anderson, MBA, CSCP, CLTD, President of LMA Consulting Group Inc., underscores the urgency of proactive supply chain management in the face of geopolitical challenges. “The Israel-Hamas conflict is a stark reminder that global supply chains can be disrupted by unforeseen political events. No matter the safeguards in place, events like this can be major disruptors. That is why organizations must cultivate options to mitigate risk and protect their bottom line.” says Ms. Anderson.
Israel’s significance as a hub for chip manufacturing, call center capabilities, software development and engineering talent makes it a player in the international network. This interdependence necessitates a recognition of dependencies that businesses must address. Supply chain disruptions present substantial risks, including potential material disruptions in supplying partners in places like India, potential logistics disruptions such as package carriers suspending shipments in Israel and container shipping lanes potentially impacted in the Suez Canal. Furthermore, the regional conflict raises concerns about oil and petroleum supplies, impacting energy markets and economies.
To protect supply chains, LMA Consulting Group collaborates closely with clients to develop strategies encompassing diversification, contingency planning and risk assessment. By identifying vulnerabilities and creating alternative options, organizations can navigate turbulent times effectively and minimize the impact of unforeseen events.
“Our primary focus is assisting companies in securing their supply chains and preserving customer performance and profitability. In today’s dynamic world, having options and a proactive approach to risk mitigation are essential,” she said.
