Feeling BP’s Pain
September 08, 2010
Now that BP has finally issued its oil-spill report, supply chain managers may have another example of “blind out-sourcing.”
At last week’s SCOPE West conference, a leading logistics practitioner stated that no matter how many fingers pointed to other culprits in the drilling disaster, BP would be forever “branded” in the minds of consumers and investors.
In remarks made during his case-study presentation on “Reducing Outsourced Manufacturing Cost and Risk,” Bristlecone’s director of field marketing, Michael Hartman, told the audience that more diligence will be needed by all multinationals when it comes to partnering in all offshore ventures.
Will anyone remember that Transocean, Halliburton and Cameron International share culpability in the Gulf tragedy?
