I want to understand the risks in selecting new suppliers

When you start doing business with new suppliers or want to compile a short list, you want to be able to identify and assess these suppliers in order to make an informed strategic selection. This will prevent damage and ensure continuity in your supply chain.

grip on risk

Know who you are doing business with

Reliable and up-to-date information is essential in the selection process of new suppliers. The stakes and risks are simply too high to trust parties 'on their blue eyes'. With the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud you can identify suppliers (who exactly am I doing business with). You can then identify the associated commercial risks and assess creditworthiness.

Furthermore, mutual dependencies can be mapped out. This is also important information that you can include in your decision-making process when assessing an RFI or RFQ. When dealing with suppliers abroad, specific country information (economic, social-political, commercial) and the specific risks involved in doing business in a country also play a role.
