Global Sourcing and Supply Chain

Managing Global Supply Chain Risks at MTN

Currently a perfect storm is brewing in global supply chain. The telecommunications industry has already been operating under this level of pressure for a while, at MTN we used this to our advantage.

By applying learnings from earlier disruptions, we created a sustainable approach through risk awareness, collaborating with suppliers as equal partners, making data-based decisions, and continuously improving our programme. The Supply Chain Risk mitigation programme at MTN covered 17 operating countries, over 2,000 critical projects and initiatives, with over 300 suppliers with $2.4Bn worth of orders, which could directly impact over 272million subscribers.
