Primary data sources via questionnaires were used for data collection. The survey questionnaire contained with five-point Likert-type scale which included questions to know the responses of the supply chain managers related to the services provided in Germany and to measure their satisfaction level. Competitive Differentiation significantly affects supply chain risk management (β= .119, P=0.000). Risk exposure significantly affects supply chain risk management (β= .850, P=0.000). Environmental risk does not significantly affect supply chain risk management (β= -0.005, P=0.704). Germany seemed to have an effective supply chain risk management system in place with special focuses on environmental, social, and legal compliance on products cycling in the market under the supervision of their senior management
