71% of suppliers say they have increased levels of trust with their customer as a result of the fully-linked collaboration program they run, according to a recent 2degrees survey.
Supply chain collaboration is a hot topic — and is it any wonder? After all, companies that collaborate effectively across the supply chain are seeing lower costs, reduced reputational risk, and increased levels of trust (but to name a few benefits).
But with increasingly fragmented supply chains, how are companies building collaborative relationships at scale with suppliers, and what approaches are driving the best outcomes?
To find out, earlier this month 2degrees ran a survey to compare the attitudes of suppliers whose customers are using traditional approaches to collaboration (such as email comms and conferences), with those whose customers are using fully-linked collaboration techniques that deliver 24/7 collaborative working practices.
Take a look at the infographic below to find out how food and drink suppliers responded to questions about how collaboration is affecting customer-supplier relationships and driving efficiency and resilience across the supply base.
This survey was conducted as part of 2degrees' Supply Base Collaboration Programs. Find out more here, or hear below from one of the suppliers that has befitted from the 2degrees collaboration programs that Asda runs for thousands of its suppliers:
