Supply Chain Management

Improve competitiveness and performance by digitizing, redesigning, and optimizing your supply chain operations—and unlock real value

Your supply chain is fundamental to your business.

Getting it right can be an indisputable driver of value and impact. Yet, in this digital age, where customers’ expectations are changing at the speed of a click, the race is on to keep up, evolve, and do even more. Add to that a shortage of talent, the challenges of globalization, and increasing cybersecurity risks, and it’s clear to see how managing and optimizing your supply chain integration can be a complex task.

What Supply Chain Consulting Services We Offer

Supply chain diagnostics and value assessments that increase shareholder value

The health of your supply chain operations is directly proportional to its success. We’ll assess your current state, identify gaps, and make recommendations for improvements. We can help you align stakeholders, optimize your network, or create a stronger strategy. Our supply chain consulting team can help identify gaps and potential problems in your processes that can help you save money on future breakdowns and reconstructions. 

Sustainable supply chain network and inventory optimization

Define your network and inventory strategy. We can help you with inventory optimization, demand planning, S&OP and forecasting, sourcing and procurement, and logistics to support your operating model—current or future state. We’ll also look at optimizing your biggest cost areas, like transportation and labor spend.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of logisticians is projected to grow 5% from 2018 to 2028. This will be due, in part, to the growing need for logistics in the transportation of goods in a global economy. Strong global supply chain management strategy that focuses on talent management is needed now more than ever. ”
