Aerospace and Defense Industry

Supply chains in the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry are among the largest and most complex in the world. Not only does the industry produce high-precision, highly engineered, and high-value products, but it is also held to exacting standards required by both military and commercial aviation safety and security. Staying current on global trade regulations, screening for restricted parties, and managing import and export challenges are all part of a complex logistics and compliance environment. A&D production is on the rise following the recent years of global disruptions, and all eyes are on managing supply chain risk. E2open and strategic partner, Exostar, are helping build resilient A&D supply chains.

Supply chain resiliency can help defend your business from supply constraints, volatile demand, and logistics and global trade challenges.
