In a complex world, an optimized supply chain can do so much more than deliver the goods

Supply chain professionals face urgent demands and conflicting priorities across virtually every aspect of their job. They're dealing with:
Meanwhile, heightened international regulations and tensions are adding to supply chain complexity, meaning more noncompliance fines, customs delays, duty cost increases, and higher-cost countries of origin for manufacturers.

Here's how our services have helped two clients.
A building products manufacturer and retailer wasn't using its transport management system (TMS) to full capacity. We redesigned it, trained employees how to use it and by the time our work was complete, we'd reduced the number of trips and loads the company's fleet was making by 5% and provided greater visibility into the status of inbound and outbound shipments.
A lighting systems automotive sector client was facing smaller shipments, a rising product portfolio, and more demanding customers. These and other factors were causing logistical challenges. We set up a scenario and defined user cases for a supply chain control tower to enable advanced partner and cost management that reduced the total cost of logistics by 14%, even in the face of the company's shrinking volume.
