The 10 Countries Most Vulnerable to Supply Chain Disruption

Supply chain is not is all sunshine and rainbows. In fact, these days, earthquakes and typhoons is more the norm. The 2014 FM Global Resilience Index ranks who is most vulnerable to a beating, and Anna Scott reports on the top ten.

Countries Cruising for a Bruising (Scored Out of 100)

  1. Dominican Republic: 0
  2. Venezuela: 2.5
  3. Kyrgyzstan: 6
  4. Mauritania: 8.6
  5. Bolivia: 11.6
  6. Pakistan: 11.6
  7. Nicaragua: 12
  8. Guyana: 14
  9. Jamaica: 14
  10. Egypt: 14.2

There were 130 countries ranked for business resilience, and Norway, Switzerland, and Canada proved to be best suited to tackle a disruption. The United States was meanwhile broken up into three separate regions in the rankings, with rankings of 18 (score 81.6), 21 (score 75.9), and 10 (score 87.4) respectively. On the other side of the spectrum, we have the Dominican Republic, which is evidently completely unprepared for natural disasters, among other disruptions. The study was produced by Oxford Metrica, and it can be found here. You can read Scott’s report on it here:
