For instance, Wal-Mart and Nike spend a lot of time to review their supplies from their tiers in third world countries where red flag has been raised on quality and child labour issues since these concerns affect their competitive advantage of global brand recognition. ● Environmental and other uncontrollable factors: The magnitude of this effect depend on how diverse the tiers in the global supply chain network is and the level of which changes are anticipated. Political and economic factors possess a high threat to global supply chain management since they are very hard to predict on a global level. Slight changes therefore have a significant impact even on the day-to-day operations in a supply chain.
