Supply chain

We analyse procurement, distribution and service to customers, the links between them; and the costs and weak points. We order and analyse these often confusing data using powerful analytical tools.

We help businesses to get more from the supply chain 

We then make recommendations and help to implement changes, generating savings, creating stronger controls, better ways of managing or more streamlined working practices. The circumstances may differ, but the aim will almost always be to serve customers better at lower cost.

Effective supply chain management should control the interactions between the buying and selling sides of the business and ensure they work in alignment. We carry out a supply chain value assessment (SCVA) to find opportunities for improvement and a performance bridge to clarify the findings. Once we have evaluated the financial impact of proposed changes, we draw up a roadmap for implementation.

Our experience includes:

  • consolidating the supply chain in the UK for the leading distributor of Caterpillar plant
  • reviewing warehousing operations in Germany for a major supplier to the retail and distribution markets
  • improving customers' ordering processes, product planning and service for a market-leading lighting manufacturer throughout Western Europe
  • designing a supply chain process, IT functional specification and organisational structure for a worldwide consumer goods company sourcing extensively in Asia
  • re-engineering the physical supply chain and fulfilment operations of a ¬£500m turnover non-food, internet retailer
  • retendering European logistics for a major US industrial products company.
