Taking a strategic view of procurement and logistics management practices can help increase profitability and improve operational alignment and supply chain resiliency.
Supply chain disruption is the new normal – which is why it’s essential to develop and implement truly strategic procurement and logistics management practices. A strategic approach to both sourcing and logistics can reduce your supply base risk profile and disruptions along the way and help you become a more efficient operator. Plus, it can improve your vendor relationship management, diversity, and performance, ultimately helping you improve spend management and achieve more competitive costs.
Our strategic sourcing and logistics optimization team can help support you as you transition from a more traditional model to develop an approach that is genuinely strategic and integrated with operations.
Taking a strategic approach to selection and management of your vendors is key to maximizing value in your organization – but what should be included in that strategy? Working with top suppliers in an integrated way, measuring and managing performance throughout the relationship, is a great start. Understanding where you have supply base risk – and making contingency plans – is also vital. And don’t forget logistics – are you considering not just the carriers you select but also how you optimize mode selection, loads, and routes? Are you optimizing your network model by region and placing inventory relative to customer demand? If you're not confident that your organization is currently maximizing value with these approaches, our team can help.
Managing strategic sourcing and logistics well is essential to optimize operations and your bottom line.
