An index produced by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply shows that supply chain risk declined slightly during the first quarter of 2014, reports Supply Management.
The risk index's score for the quarter was 79.8, down from 82.2 in the fourth quarter of 2013, though businesses have been urged to remain vigilant.
Improved economic prospects in the UK, Germany and the US contributed to this fall, reports Supply Management.
