Supply Chain Strategy
Supply Chain Strategy is about defining and implementing those core competencies required in the supply chain which will differentiate you from your competition.
The development of a Supply Chain Strategy requires a structured process and methodology.
Several of our competitors claim to be able to support strategy development but often embark on cost saving, quality or productivity initiatives in a strategic vacuum.

End 2 End Supply Chain Design
Our aim is to ensure that your supply chain delivers the right product, in the right quantities, to the right place, at the right time, with the right cost and the right fixed and working capital. In addition you need to be sure that your supply chain is resilient to change, whether it emerges internally or externally.
All supply chains are unique so “right”, in this context, depends upon the choices you make, the dynamics of your business and uncertainty.
Helping you to decide what’s “right” for your business and the capabilities in which you need to invest to achieve your aims, is what we specialise in. More information about how we go about it can be found here.
Sourcing is a subset of Supply Chain Design but, in the case of Inter-market Sourcing, the difficulty in delivering the required level of customer service at the least cost and gross capital employed is often magnified by an increase in lead time and made more complex by regulatory barriers.
Extended lead times create uncertainty and uncertainty creates inventory. In some cases, holding more inventory will not provide sufficient compensation and the result is customer service failures.
