No supply chain is 100% crisis-proof. This is demonstrated by the consequences of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. In February 2022, the political situation between the two countries had escalated to such an extent that Russia invaded Ukraine militarily. This is currently causing not only terrible humanitarian problems, but also economic consequences that are being felt in Europe and the United States, among other places. More and more global supply chains are in danger of collapsing, both because of the military-related loss of Ukrainian business partners and because of international sanctions against Russia and Russian companies.
Continually, globalization has increased dependencies in world trade. Bottlenecked trade routes in particular are critical for maintaining global supply chains. The recently congested trade routes therefore require an effective risk management. With customs and lately also maritime port data, ABRAMS world trade wiki enables supply chain resilience even under pressure.
In global trade, it is crucial to know your markets and their developments. But what about the players in the markets? Who sells competing products and who is a potential or even direct competitor?

Already strained supply chains are further strained, while an end to the blockade is not in sight.
