According to the 2015 FM Global Resilience Index, Norway has the most resilient supply chain of any country around the world.
The index ranks 130 countries based on their risk mitigation plans, geographic position, investments, and economic stability. Norway scored so well because the country has minimal exposure to natural disasters, in addition to their economy and supply chain investments.
Switzerland came in second place because of their strong economy. Other countries that made the top ten include Qatar, Finland, the United States, Netherlands, Ireland, Luxembourg, Germany, and Canada. Qatar has a strong fire risk mitigation plan and Finland has a high level of public and private research and development investments in supply chain.
Taiwan did not make the top ten, but they have moved up significantly this year because of improvements in the country’s risk mitigation plans.
