Episode 1: Successfully navigating international supply chain disruption

The biggest challenge currently facing all sectors globally is supply chain disruption. A perfect storm of post-COVID-19 recovery spurring demand coupled with a lack of resources, the war in Ukraine, rising prices and energy costs mean suppliers are under pressure across the board. How are their contracts stacking up? One thing’s for sure – long, fixed price contracts are a thing of the past. What can suppliers and their customers do in the face of such uncertainty? In this bumper episode to launch our new Better Contracts podcast series, Greg Tulquois, Thilo von Bodungen and Paddy Dwyer look at how companies can adopt a pragmatic approach to managing their supply contracts and how the law in France, Germany and the UK might help them.
