Tier-X supply chain resilience
Managing supply chain risks with Tier-X transparency
Geopolitical tensions put supply chain stability at risk. Trade barriers and investment screenings, technology restrictions, sanctions and risks of conflict disrupt the flow of components, data and personnel. Companies react to new geopolitical realities by adjusting their Tier-1 supplier networks. But the real dependencies lie deeper: Tier-X supply relationships often remain opaque and unmanaged.
Sinolytics deploys our proprietary Sinolytics Supply Chain Database that maps supplier relations down to Tier-8 level. Sinolytics helps clients to X-ray their entire supplier network, pinpointing China-related dependencies. Our supply chain experts untangle the complexity of supply networks for semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, electronics, photovoltaics, motors, batteries, and many others. Sinolytics analysis includes the implications of raw material dependencies like lithium, cobalt, rare earth elements, silicon, tungsten, or magnesium.
Sinolytics combines supply chain analysis with comprehensive geopolitical monitoring and scenario-building. By conducting scenario-based geopolitical stress tests and cost-benefit assessments, we support our clients in finding feasible and balanced measures to enhance resilience. Together with client procurement and strategy departments as well as companies’ executive management, we develop tailor-made toolboxes for supply chain risk reduction.
