The Supply Chain Transformation Specialists

Whilst the concept of near sourcing is starting to gain some traction as the balance between cost and service subtly shifts, the predominant direction of travel on sourcing is still to go offshore in search of the lowest first cost for buyers.

Handled badly and these extended supply chains can significantly impact on performance in terms of final landed cost, inventory exposure and customer service, handled well and they can be a winning source of competitive advantage.

Key focus areas where success is won and lost include supplier compliance at source, origin logistics capability, inbound transportation arrangements, and flow planning at destination.

Our experience in this area is significant, developing and implementing a widely admired supply chain operating model to support a major global sourcing organisation deliver sustained volume and margin growth whilst increasing service levels and reducing inventory and mark down.
