Often at an individual SKU level the results you achieve in terms of cost to serve, inventory management or customer service are the unintended consequences of the decisions you make about how items are routed and flowed through the supply chain.
Channel selection is increasingly seen as a powerful lever in improving supply chain performance both at the individual item level as well as improving overall effectiveness.
By focussing on the specific characteristics of individual SKU’s and aligning them with the characteristics of the various routing options available through your supply chain, it is possible to transform the performance not just of problem SKU’s but also the efficiency and utilisation of the supply chain network overall.
We have developed and delivered supply chain optimisation programmes that use channel decision tools both to measure the current state, and to identify what needs changing and fixing to optimise the future state. Our experience and thought leadership in this area can unlock significant value in your supply chain.
