Procurement risk

As a result of the global recovery in the automotive markets, the automotive supplier industry also stabilized in 2010. The number of insolvencies declined significantly year-on-year. Suppliers that weathered the financial and economic crisis well are currently using their position to drive the industry’s consolidation, thus helping to reduce default risk. In establishing and expanding a comprehensive procurement risk management system, Volkswagen placed particular emphasis on risk prevention. Risk management continuously monitors suppliers’ economic stability. If there is evidence of negative developments, the appropriate measures are taken to ensure supplies and reduce additional risks. To date, ongoing risk classification and monitoring has enabled us to avoid supply risks due to supplier defaults.
