Supply Chain & Operations

Please choose…

Most multinational companies consider reconfiguring their supply chains more effectively to be a key near-term priority. The majority of these companies are also taking environmental issues into account in their strategic decisions, either because of statutory constraints or possible negative impacts on their image.

Supply chain managers have to balance operational costs and supply chain agility against fluctuating customer demand.

Supply chain teams need to optimize resources, including manufacturing capacity, distribution capacity and inventory levels. They must continuously solve critical issues including sourcing decisions, and factory and warehouse location/allocation in order to better serve customers.


Supply chain management is the art of combining conflicting goals and finding the right balance between your company’s efficiency (costs & assets) and your customers’ required service levels (responsiveness, reliability and flexibility).

The aim is to both improve your own company’s performance and meet your customer’s expectations.

Experience is the key, and because many of our supply chain management consultants come with relevant operational expertise from a wide range of industries, we know how to design and implement appropriate solutions to address the challenges you face.
