Are Two Vendors Better Than One?
American writer Tom Peters famously said that “Leaders win through logistics. Vision, sure. Strategy, yes. But when you go to war, you need to have both toilet paper and bullets at the right place at the right time. In other words, you must win through superior logistics.”
Pros and Cons of Single Suppliers
When you place order with a single supplier the costs are reduced. Volume leverage can be worked in favour along with the power to negotiate small and frequent deliveries to improve inventory control. However in hindsight you can lose potential customers if they happen to know about your single sourcing, with the course of time balance of dependence can become highly lopsided in such an asymmetrical relationship. Thus making, it difficult to procure best of breed products from a single source.
So, how diverse is your supplier base?
It is no rocket science that you would benefit from having multiple suppliers. Imagine your supplier has been lured by your rival; risk can be averted if you have another supplier to fall back on. However lower order volumes can hurt your overall bargaining power. If your supplier has a low priority for your business in case of emergency you cannot expect the goods from him. The overhead cost involved in contract negotiation, management, and process execution can shoot through the roof when you are dealing with multiple suppliers.
