The development in global network perspectives forces the demand for a proper knowledge management and according configuration of performance and risk issues that occur from the ongoing trend towards the globalized supply chain. The paper shows the requirement shift through globalized procurement. As an effect towards long distance purchasing activities the direct control of production, logistics processes and processing are out of direct control for most of the person in charge in downstream processes. Process transparency and information readiness are essential to reduce risk in (e-)business networks. Output of this requirement is a long-term orientated knowledge management. Support can be delivered by vertical coordination through interorganizational agencies as EurepGap and IFS for the food industry. In this industry a huge gap can be identified in between brand mark products (of international/global brand companies) and local/regional producers – leading to a twin track development.
