What is Supply Chain Management?
Supply Chain Management is the handling of the flow of goods and services between businesses and locations, including the movement and storage of raw materials, inventory, and finished goods, as well as end to end order fulfilment from point of origin to the consumer.
To cope with the constant increase in customer requirements, the implementation of an efficient and agile supply chain is a real competitive advantage for companies. Organizations that optimize their supply chains improve their perfect order rating by an average of 17%, at the same time reducing supply chain costs by up to 50%. In today’s economy, that’s an advantage worth taking.
Our approach to Supply Chain Management combines 'blue-sky thinking' - creative brainstorming without limits - with the realities of your existing supply chain footprint and infrastructure; it’s a practical, proven approach, which brings substantial performance benefits.
