In a world of rapidly evolving and changing markets, Retailers face significant challenges trying to address the ever-increasing complexity of their business. In this environment the role of Supply Chain Management is becoming even more important. Our supply chain expertise is critically important in keeping on top of change and the costs and problems which may arise.
Supply Chain & Logistics are often thought of as the same, however it is important to understand the fundamental difference – as each requires different skillsets and experience. Imagine a computer, where Logistics / Product Distribution is the ‘Hardware’, running the warehouses, moving boxes and coordinating trucks on the road; and Supply Chain is the ‘Software’ that enables all of this by calculating orders, creating plans and forecasts: it’s the engine and heart of the End-to-End Supply-chain.
A study from 2014 shows that CEO’s prioritize growth over cost saving 5 to 1. Supply Chain & Logistics together play a dual role of ‘growth partner’ and ‘cost saving opportunity’. It is a function that can drive competitive advantage and reduced waste resources, helping take your company to the next level – whether you are a start up, medium or large business.
