Growing competitive pressure, internationalization, increasing transportation costs, and a dynamic change in general economic conditions have made supply chain management a key issue when running a company.

Best-in-class companies are able to adapt and align their supply chain in a targeted manner across all locations, from purchasing (source) to production (make) all the way to delivery (deliver). In this way, they can target significant advantages over the competition in benchmark comparisons, strengthening and expanding their position in the market.


Typical areas to tackle in the field of supply chain excellence are
  • Unreliable delivery and lack of delivery capacity despite high levels of inventory
  • Lead times that are not in line with market requirements
  • Excessive costs of the operative supply chain
