Rising energy costs drive manufacturers to reassess supply chain strategy, offshoring

Boston November 1, 2005 Senior manufacturing executives believe that rising energy costs will change the way they conduct their business and are looking to their supply chain managers to minimize the pain, according to a survey conducted by the analyst firm Industry Directions Inc.

Additionally, the increasing burden of energy costs is forcing organizations to rethink not only their distribution plans, but also their operating strategies for contract manufacturing. These findings come from a survey of over 60 corporate executives from a wide range of industrial companies about the impact of energy on their business, Industry Directions said.

Over three-quarters (77 percent) of the executives surveyed indicated that they are increasingly focused on supply chain issues as a result of the rapid changes in energy markets.
