Growth in world trade and corresponding movements has lead companies to capitalize on global sourcing opportunities in supply chain and going global means adding frequently risks. Collaboration in the supply chain is a process change. The result of this change was influenced by the new challenges of supply chain network leaders. The recent emergence of this field forced business enterprises to invest and focus attention on creating a profitable and lasting supply chain network. Companies cannot see many risks that are emerging and changing. Influencing by outside environment and inside factors, the major manifestations of supply chain system include production delays, quality failures, and program cancellations. Increasing search for international partners and customers is creating ever more complicated risks. Most supply chain members have already established internal crisis policy now but before it happens they were faced with some serious crises that caused real damages like loos of profit and customers trust. After that companies decided that is better to develop relationships to work together for improving their performances. The conclusion was that companies are not alone in the competitive environment, working together can be more profitable.
